An in–depth and accessible resource for all health care professionals interested in meeting the physical and emotional needs of their patients

Bringing together an international group of experts from across all health–related disciplines, Comprehensive Handbook of Clinical Health Psychology bridges the gap between health psychology and medicine to provide up–to–date and relevant information and strategies all health care professionals need to address both the physical and mental health care needs of their clients.

Written in an accessible, reader–friendly manner, this reference covers the conditions and trends that have become most prevalent in the field of health psychology today, including obesity, tobacco cessation, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, spinal cord injuries, chronic pain, and more—and looks at both prevention as well as treatment—providing strategies and recommendations across the spectrum of care.

This comprehensive and current resource includes chapters on:

  • The Model for Integrating Medicine and Psychology—a hands–on tool to guide clinicians through the biopsychosocial model
  • Insurance and managed care issues
  • Substance abuse in medical settings
  • Pediatric psychology
  • Chronic disease prevention

Providing practical information and guidance on how to apply health psychology research and techniques to make decisions and modify patients′ behavior, Comprehensive Handbook of Clinical Health Psychology is an invaluable reference tool for all health care professionals.
