Description: "Health psychology has developed rapidly as a discipline over the past 25 years and this book gives a very valuable contemporary view of the area. The editors and authors are world experts in their fields and they offer a well-organised overview of the empirical evidence, theoretical approaches and opportunities for intervention in behaviour relevant to health, illness and healthcare." Prof Marie Johnston, School of Psychology, University of Aberdeen "This book is a comprehensive and refreshing summary of the health psychology literature by a series of distinguished contributors. The book successfully unites a broad spectrum of information in an engaging format. This volume is an essential resource for the graduate health psychology student and an invaluable reference for those wanting up-to-date information on the health psychology field." Dr Keith Petrie, University of Auckland, New Zealand "Health Psychology offers a well-structured, state-of-the-art overview of the major theoretical, empirical, and practical issues, written by leading international experts. It is an indispensable companion for students, researchers and practitioners. Health Psychology is an essential volume that moves the field another step ahead." Wilmar Schaufeli, PhD, Director of the Research Institute Psychology & Health, Utrecht University "Written by a team of internationally known writers and researchers in the field, this book stands out from other textbooks of health psychology. The opening chapter alone ought to be mandatory reading for anyone contemplating health psychology as a career and those in related professions, while the ensuing chapters give new interest to the major issues in current mainstream health psychology. This is a timely and welcome contribution to the discipline." Sandra Horn, School of Psychology, University of Southampton "This volume constitutes a major step forward in the development of health psychology as a science and as a professional discipline by giving an up to date and thorough overview of the field, often with a refreshing European flavour. It offers a number of useful features like mentioning key studies for a certain area and proposing 'discussion points'." Prof Dr Jan Vinck, Limburgs Universitair Centrum, Belgium "This comprehensive collection provides an authoritative overview of current thinking in health psychology research. A team of leading and predominantly European researchers map out the state of the science in an accessible and informative style." Prof Charles Abraham, Department of Psychology, University of Sussex "Health Psychology is another very good textbook that has much to offer those with an interest in health psychology ... The content is densely packed, but the 'Chaper Outline' and 'Key Concepts' at the beginning of each chapter ensure that finding particular information is quick and easy ... The book has a contemporary feel to it, referring to up-to-date studies and ideas. Many of the chapters are thoughtful and critical, and often acknowledge current difficulties and shortcomings." Emma Dures, University of the West of England, Psychology, Health and Medicine, February 2005, 10(1): 122-124 "This is another in the excellent series of textbooks produced by Blackwell and deals in this case with a relatively new field that studies psychological processes in health, illness and healthcare." Scientific and Medical Network Review, Summer 2005
