Summary
"This book provides a readable introduction to health psychology and acknowledges that many of its readers will not have a background understanding of psychology. The emphasis is on health and health promotion: the stress and strain of everyday life, communicating effectively with patients and their families, understanding people's motivation to behave healthily or unhealthily. The book also explores examples of how psychological models apply to illness and treatment."--BOOK JACKET. "Both students and qualified health care professionals, especially nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists, will find this book an accessible and relevant introduction to health psychology."--BOOK JACKET
