Explore multiple disciplines to understand the impact of psychology on health, and vice versa

In the newly revised 10th edition of Health Psychology: Biopsychosocial Interactions, a team of dedicated psychologists delivers an insightful and multidisciplinary demonstration of the impact of psychology and health on one another. Relying heavily on cross-cultural data, the book offers a sweeping and inclusive picture of health psychology and includes local and global research and case studies.

The authors have included boxed materials in each chapter that directs the reader's attention to the right information at the right time. Behavioral, physiological, cognitive, and social/personality viewpoints are addressed throughout the text and a strong focus on lifespan development in health and illness pervades the material. Readers will also find:
* Psychological perspectives on a wide variety of health issues from various parts of the world
* Highlights of what works for practicing psychologists and what doesn't when their work intersects with other fields in health
* Expansive treatments of topics like the effect of stress on health, the impact of adverse childhood experiences, and the interaction between religiosity and health

Health Psychology: Biopsychosocial Interactions is an essential resource for undergraduate students in psychology with an interest in health. It's also invaluable for allied health professionals, addictions counselors, dietitians and nutritionists, and social workers seeking an authoritative resource on the effect of psychology on their daily work.
