Handbook of Clinical Health Psychology is a comprehensive overview of the practice of clinical health psychology by internationally respected authors. Demonstrating how an awareness of psychological issues can make a difference to patients, families and carers, this
Handbook provides authoritative summaries of research evidence in health care, and demonstrates how they are put into practice. Further chapters place these in the context of the broader health care environment, and topics such as adherence, communication and the likely future of health care provision are discussed.
Detailed and integrated, this Handbook will be the essential reference work for all clinical and health psychologists, whether in academic, practice or training settings. It will also be useful for a range of other professionals in health care, including social work, counselling, nursing and medicine.
