Overview

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.
