Cambridge Handbook of Psychology, Health and Medicine



Health psychology is a rapidly expanding discipline combining psychology and clinical medicine. This important text collates international and interdisciplinary expertise to form a unique encyclopedic handbook to this field that will be valuable to medical practitioners as well as psychologists. To facilitate easy reference, the handbook's chapters are alphabetically organized with extensive crossreferencing. The first of three sections introduces the nonspecialist reader to broad areas of psychology relevant to the practice of medicine. The second and third sections examine behavioral factors in relation to practice by citing specific medical conditions. This book will prove to be an invaluable resource to all those with an interest in the psychological aspects of health care.
