Product description

The second edition of Health Psychology: Biopsychosocial Interactions continues to draw on the research and theoretical perspectives of many disciplines to illustrate the interrelationship of psychology and health. Using the biopsychosocial model for understanding the whole person in health and illness, the text explores current Australasian and international research conducted by health psychologists, public health researchers and those working in related fields. This edition retains the structure, broad scope, pedagogical features and clear, accessible style of Sarafino's landmark work, while applying Australasian health-related statistics and documenting a wide range of Australasian health promotion programs.
