Psychology Builds a Healthy World: Opportunities for Research and Practice by Ronald H. Rozensky

Psychology Builds a Healthy World covers the entire domain of psychological health from the family, to the workplace, to the community. Geared toward health psychologists and students, as well as those practitioners and researchers working with families, communities, and in the workplace, this book offers ideas and areas for expansion of research and practice. This volume highlights the many ways in which psychologists can help build healthy families, healthy communities, and healthy workplaces. Distinguished contributors examine medical and behavioral health activities to prevent illness, injury, and trauma; identify key biopsychosocial factors in acute and chronic illness across the developmental life span; and discuss the health implications in work, family, and social relationships.
