The Handbook of Health Psychology is considered the handbook of health psychology. It represents the state-of-the-science in the field by covering basic processes as well as cross-cutting issues and applications to the study of specific diseases. The editors offer a great balance of expertise with one noted for their work in the bio-behavioral components and the other for the psychosocial/sociocultural issues. As in the first edition, the contributors include the top researchers and rising stars in field. Thoroughly updated throughout, the second edition features: * Two new sections, one on risk and protective factors for disease and the other on macro-level factors that affect health, such as socioeconomic status. * A more consistent structure in each chapter including an Overview, History, Methodology, Conclusion, Suggestions for Further Research, and References. More on prevention and/or interventions and treatment in the applications sections. The handbook serves as a primary textbook in graduate level courses in health psychology.
