📒Health Psychology ✍ Gillian N. Penny
✏Health Psychology Book Summary : The psychology of health is a rapidly expanding field within psychology. It draws upon a number of areas of psychology for its theoretical base but, whilst the contribution of social and cognitive psychology is widely acknowledged, that of lifespan psychology is perhaps less well recognised. However, a lifespan perspective has much to offer the health psychologist in the search for a more comprehensive understanding of health and illness. This book brings together European, American and Australian researchers whose interests in health psychology can be located within a lifespan context. The book explores the relevance of developmental and ageing processes to such issues as health and illness perception, illness prevention and health promotion, the experience of chronic illness, health and illness behaviour and the costs and consequences of illness. It does so by addressing specific health concerns within each of five stages in the life-cycle-childhood, adolescence, early adulthood, middle adulthood and old age. Thus, for example, the implications of emergent sexuality for health are addressed within the section on adolescence, psychological aspects of reproductive failure and the new technologies are considered within the section on early adulthood whilst issues of social support, social control and health are explored in the section on old age. Taken as a whole, the book offers the reader an interesting and informative illustration of the ways in which a lifespan perspective can enhance our understanding of health and illness.
📒Health Psychology ✍ John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation
✏Health Psychology Book Summary : In 1976, a small group of psychologists urged that more research be done on aspects of health and health care outside the domain of mental health. Today, health psychology is one of the fastest growing divisions of the American Psychological Association; journals and textbooks in increasing numbers are another signal of rapid growth in this field.

📒Health Psychology ✍ Michael Feuerstein
✏Health Psychology Book Summary : Although it has been assumed since early recorded history that psycho logical factors influence health and illness, it has only been within the past few years that a group of investigators and clinicians with a shared interest in the application of psychological principles and techniques to health and illness has existed. Over this same period of time, a number of multi-author books on the topic of health psychology and an associ ated field, behavioral medicine, have been published. Although these books are major resources for the investigator and the clinician in the field, it is often difficult for students, both undergraduate and graduate, to learn the basics of health psychology from such books. Thus, Health Psychology: A Psychobiological Perspective was written to provide such basics. The need for such a textbook in health psychology became appar ent to the first author when he was searching for reading material for an undergraduate course in health psychology at McGill University. This book grew out of the course in health psychology, and its structure represents the course content. The purpose of the book is to present the theoretical, empirical, and clinical aspects of the rapidly developing field of health psychology. Data from a number of subdisciplines within psychology and the behav ioral and health-related sciences are integrated throughout each chapter in an effort to provide a balanced perspective. Health Psychology explores the development of the field and its research methodologies, theoretical models, and intervention possibilities.
