Numerous acute and chronic diseases can be prevented simply by maintaining healthy behavioral patterns. This handbook provides practical and authoritative health management information for both health psychologists and primary care physicians whose clients and patients suffer from health-related issues and risks. The text also serves as a useful resource for policy makers and graduate students studying public health or health psychology.
This new edition of The Handbook of Health Behavior Change provides an updated and expanded view of the factors that influence the adoption of healthy behaviors. The contributors also examine the individual, social, and cultural factors that can inhibit or promote health behavior change.
The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
