Overview

This major textbook provides an authoritative and comprehensive account of the health psychology field, focusing on core topics such as health and the individual, stress and coping and the linking of health psychology to experiences of health and illness.

The key features of Health Psychology are: its strong coverage of the entire health psychology discipline; its international and interdisciplinary appeal; it responds uniquely to a changing world where psychological processes need to be understood in relation to effective methods of disease prevention and health promotion; and it illustrates health psychology's relevance to the understanding of the cultural, political and economic roots of behaviour and experience.
