Bringing together an internationally respected team of experts, the second edition of Fundamentals of Health Psychology continues to offer a comprehensive introduction to the key topics and approaches in the fast-growing field of health psychology. Building on the basics, this contributed volume introduces students to general areas of health psychology - such as body systems, health-care systems, stress, and illness prevention - before moving on to examine health conditions, issues affecting special populations, and cross-cultural concerns. The second edition features two new chapters; one on eating, smoking, and recreational substance use; and the other on chronic health problems, and the latest research in the field, including new material on topics such as sleep, end-of-life care, and the influence of technology and social media on health. Compelling and thought-provoking, Fundamentals of Health Psychology offers students the foundation they need to engage critically with the most pressing issues in health psychology today.
