An international panel of authors – all practising clinicians and researchers – demonstrate how clinical health psychology can make a difference to the experience of patients, families and carers. Key topics covered include:
- The person’s experience of health care
- The experience of families and carers
- Oncology and psycho–oncology
- Chronic pain
- Treatment of obesity
- Sexual health and HIV
The Essentials of Clinical Health Psychology provides authoritative accounts of psychological models, interventions and evidence base in a broad range of conditions and concepts. It will be a valuable resource for all academics, researchers and practitioners in this area, and will also be of great use to students and those in training.
