January 2008 | 304 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
While current textbooks in health psychology offer the reader some conceptual reasoning about different aspects of the discipline, there is no one source which provides an accessible, navigable and cross-referenced analysis of the major models and ideas in health psychology.

Key Concepts in Health Psychology provides a `one stop' analysis of key issues, theories, models and methods in contemporary health psychology. It enables the reader to engage with a full range of approaches and methods in the field, and importantly to be able to appreciate the relationships between these.

Defining Health Psychology
Research Methods and Measurement
Social Cognitive Models
Biological and Physiological Models
Individual Differences and Habit
Illness-related and Sick Role Beliefs
Acute and Chronic Illness
Addictive Behaviours
