Primary Care Psychology examines the essential role that psychology plays in the delivery of primary care. Exciting opportunities in the delivery of behavioral health services have emerged in this area. Because psychological and behavioral interventions are natural complements to primary care, psychology is poised to become a full partner in the health professions. For the first time, this edited volume brings together the leading researchers, scholars, and practitioners in the field to create a thorough and integrated manual about the major topics in primary care psychology. Chapters provide detailed descriptions of procedures that successfully implement theory, practical analyses of clinical and research implications, comprehensive discussions about the provision of care within special populations, critical examinations of the effect that health policy has on practice and resource allocation, and helpful illustrations and case studies. The book will be a valuable resource for anyone who wants effective methods for providing coordinated and integrated health care to patients and families.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This book delves into the increasing role that psychologists are playing in the primary healthcare field. The book discusses the practice of primary care psychology, specific populations where psychology is needed, and the various health systems.
Purpose: The purpose is to introduce psychologists to this rapidly expanding area of psychology and the various opportunities it holds. The book takes the reader through various settings such as pediatrics, internal medicine, and family medicine. Given the current state of medicine, this is a worthy objective and the book is quite timely.
Audience: Essentially, clinical and academic psychologists will find this book most useful, yet primary care physicians will benefit as well from the ideas and discussion in this exceptionally written book. The authors are credible members of the mental health field.
Features: The book is quite substantial and covers the expected introductory sections of what primary care psychology is and how to integrate healthcare, and explores the physician-patient relationship. I particularly liked the recommendations for education and training in primary care psychology. The discussions of pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, chronic care, and geriatric medicine are worth reading. The book is a bit wordy at times, but the level of detail and the explanations more than compensate.
Assessment: In a time of changing healthcare options and dissatisfaction with shortened office visits to one's physician, this book addresses a much needed exploration of the roles that psychologists can play within traditional medical practice. Recommended reading!
