Each chapter opens with learning objectives and concludes with a summary of the main points to consolidate learning. A reading list and sample essay questions at the end of each chapter enable further independent study. The series also offers an appreciation of multiple perspectives, examines the relationship between psychology and other cognate disciplines and discusses recent developments in each field. Topics in Applied Psychology will provide you with the tools you need to engage with, enjoy and understand your applied psychology discipline, ultimately ensuring confidence and success in exams as well as a comprehensive grounding in the profession. Health Psychology guides the reader through core issues in health psychology research and practice.

The book outlines mechanisms, models and methods and examines how biological, cognitive, affective and social processes impact on health and illness. It also explores how stress and coping mechanisms affect health behaviors, the psychological determinants of health behavior and the design and evaluation of health behavior change interventions. Two chapters focus on how psychological research can be used to change health-related attitudes and behaviors. Communication between the patient and practitioner is discusses and the final section focuses on the role of the health psychologist and the training route to this profession. The integrated and interactive approach, combined with the comprehensive coverage, make this book the ideal companion for courses in applied health psychology.
