Health psychology students will need to understand how to evaluate and critically-appraise the latest theory and research before it can be applied. This fully-revised and updated Fifth Edition takes a critical approach and places health psychology in a real-world context, enabling students to understand how public policy, theory and research can influence communities and individuals alike.

The new Fifth Edition includes:

  • 9 new and expanded chapters
  • Updated material on stress and coping, doctor-patient communication, death, dying, bereavement and quality of life
  • Introductions to the social, political and economic conditions that influence our health
  • Breadth of coverage from social inequality through to chronic illness and screening

This book also comes with access to fantastic online resources including multiple choice quizzes, case studies, test banks and slides that can be easily integrated into your institution's virtual learning environment or learning management system. This allows you to customize and curate content for use in module preparation, delivery and assessment.
