While current textbooks in health psychology offer the reader some conceptual reasoning about different aspects of the discipline, there is no one source which provides an accessible, navigable, and cross-referenced analysis of the major models and ideas. The influences and foundations of this important field are vast and sometimes challenging for students studying it in various disciplines. This textbook presents the core bases of the field in a manner that should make teaching and learning more inviting and exciting.
Key Concepts in Health Psychology is a core textbook for all undergraduate and graduate students taking Health Psychology for the first time, and strongly recommended to students taking the course in Allied Health and Medical disciplines.
this book provides a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to health psychology. Encompassing the biological and psychosocial elements, I recommend this text not just for psychology undergraduates, but all allied health programmes. I am using this resource for undergraduate physiotherapy and speech and language therapy students
