"Introduction to Health Psychology in Australia provides comprehensive and balanced coverage of health psychology from an Australian and international perspective. The text covers all mainstream health psychology topics – such as risk behaviour, stress and illness, family life and public health – with analyses and evaluations of contemporary issues such as cross-cultural dimensions of health and illness, biological systems, lifespan influences and the impact of illness on family carers. Following the approach that describing, predicting and intervening are the goals of health psychologists, the authors present issues, then introduce the theory and research evidence and assess the relevant interventions. Health promotion across the lifespan is discussed throughout the text"-- Publisher's summary.

This textbook aims to provide students with a stimulating alternative to the textbooks currently available by placing the discipline within the context of the social world and encouraging them to question some of the assumptions and values underlying much current research. A comprehensive survey of the discipline is provided, framed within a lifespan approach, and emphasising social-cultural factors such as gender, ethnicity and social-economic status. All major topics are covered, including health behaviours, health promotion, coping strategies, stress, biomedical and biopsychosocial models of health and illness, chronic illnesses, psychoneuroimmunology, disability, pain, and patient-provider communication. Each topic is situated within its social and cultural context and constantly linked back to real-world experience. Chapters include valuable features such as research updates, learning objectives and recommended readings. This book will be an invaluable resource for students of health psychology across a range of disciplines including psychology, anthropology and health studies.
