Applied Topics in Health Psychology provides students and trainees in clinical health and health promotion with a selection of topical chapters by prominent Australian health psychologists who are working in the field as researchers, educators, and clinicians. With in–depth, critical and comprehensive examination of specialized topics in health psychology, it addresses both theoretical and methodological considerations and also elucidates applied techniques to illustrate a particular evidence–based therapy or approach. Its discrete sections cover core topics in health psychology, from substance use and misuse to enhancing health behaviors and adjusting to chronic illness.

Offering a much–needed contextualization of health psychology for Australasian students, this is a valuable fresh resource for postgraduate trainees, and with its state–of–the–art coverage of a broad range of issues it will be required reading for Health College members as well as a range of practitioners working in related fields.
