This third edition of the much acclaimed Cambridge Handbook of Psychology, Health and Medicine offers a fully up-to-date, comprehensive, accessible, one-stop resource for doctors, health care professionals, mental health care professionals (such as psychologists, counsellors, specialist nurses), academics, researchers, and students specializing in health across all these fields. The new streamlined structure of the book features brief section overviews summarising the state of the art of knowledge on the topic to make the information easier to find. The encyclopaedic aspects of the Handbook have been retained; all the entries, as well as the extensive references, have been updated. Retaining all the virtues of the original, this edition is expanded with a range of new topics, such as the effects of conflict and war on health and wellbeing, advancements in assisted reproduction technology, e-health interventions, patient-reported outcome measures, health behaviour change interventions, and implementing changes into health care practice.
'Are you looking for a one-stop resource on health psychology? This is it. Assessment, interventions, behavior, coping, development, and prevention efforts are all comprehensively covered. Aimed at a diverse professional audience, this content provides a sophisticated, international perspective on the emerging field that lies at the intersection of psychology, health, and medicine.' Karina W. Davidson, Columbia University Medical Center
Advance praise: 'As a physician, it is clear that successful treatment involves not only prescribing appropriate medicines but also dealing with the psychological aspects of patients' illness. This requires understanding how patients cope with their disease but also how their perceptions alter the physical manifestations and consequently their quality of life. This excellent book deals with these issues in an authoritative way, and is a must read for health psychologists or for anyone involved in delivering clinical care to patients.' Albert Ferro, King's College London
