Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

"Behavioral factors are key to both disease prevention and recovery. This comprehensive volume examines multiple models of behavior change and applies them to a wide array of health concerns. Detailed and accessible, the book contains invaluable resources for practitioners and researchers across the health disciplines who need to address not only the human body, but also the human spirit within it. It will doubtless become a core resource for those engaged in health-related interventions. I also would recommend this book for students in all the health sciences, from advanced undergraduates to those at the highest levels of professional training."--Richard M. Ryan, PhD, Department of Clinical and Social Psychology, University of Rochester "These distinguished editors and contributors provide an engaging, comprehensive presentation of the current state of the science; a tutorial in how to think about the overarching issues in this dynamic field; and a guide to applying the research to meet challenges in health care. Advanced students and a wide range of health researchers and professionals will appreciate this cutting-edge review. This forward-looking view of how health psychology fits into the broader agenda of health research, services, and policy will serve the field well for many years."--Timothy W. Smith, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Utah "Suls, Davidson, and Kaplan are leaders in the fields of health psychology and behavioral medicine. Their new handbook features 36 chapters by outstanding contributors who cover every facet of these interrelated disciplines. Each chapter is up to date and highly readable. This is a 'must-have' reference for graduate students and researchers in health psychology, behavioral medicine, and related disciplines, such as medical sociology and nursing science. It would make a terrific text for a one- or two-semester course."--Kenneth A. Wallston, PhD, School of Nursing, Vanderbilt University
