About the eBook

Health Psychology takes a truly international and critical biopsychosocial approach, providing students with a holistic understanding of health behaviour, culture and change. Thoroughly updated with the latest research, this comprehensive introduction to foundational and cutting-edge topics in health psychology gives you the tools you need to critically appraise theory and research, and to apply this knowledge to real-world public health issues.

Praised for its coverage of social justice, macro-social and cultural issues in health, this edition features three new chapters on parenting and health, responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, and gender-affirmative healthcare for transgender people. Now in full colour, it also includes updated pedagogy, with international Key Studies, Critical Discussions and Insights boxes to extend your learning. 

Written by experts in the field, this must-read for students of Health Psychology, Health Promotion and Health Behaviour demonstrates how theory and research learned in the classroom impacts public policy around the world.
