A comprehensive and balanced coverage of health psychology from an Australian and international perspective

With coverage across all mainstream health topics with analyses and evaluations of contemporary issues, the authors present issues then introduce theory and research evidence to assess relevant interventions.

 

In addition to the original European focus, the authors believed a comprehensive Australian-focused textbook was required. The vast rural and regional areas, indigenous populations, and the high immigrant population, all present particular challenges to our health system that are important to understand and address.

The overall aim of this text is to provide a comprehensive Australian textbook which is firmly grounded in both theory and empirical evidence, with sufficient breadth of material for introductory students, but also sufficient research depth to benefit final-year students or those conducting a health psychology project.
