Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This text covers a variety of subjects in the field of health psychology, such as stress, pain, coping, behavior and chronic disease, and preventing injuries and disease through behavioral modification. Each chapter begins with the basic questions the material will try to address and a case study that applies to these issues, and ends with summarized answers, a glossary, and suggested readings. Brannon and Feist, both of McNeese State University, address a number of controversial subjects, and encourage their readers to view the research critically. Scattered throughout the material are tips about how to check your health risks and how to become healthier, making this book both an academic text as well as a practical guide to health.

Dr. Brannon and co-author Jess Feist are both professors in the department of Psychology at McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana, where they have been teaching since receiving their doctorates. After becoming interested in the emerging field of health psychology, Brannon and Feist co-authored the first edition of this text in the 1980s, and they have enjoyed expanding and developing their text along with the field for more than two decades. In addition to her work in health psychology, Dr. Brannon has authored a text on gender and is co-author of an introductory psychology text.
