About the Author:

Howard S. Friedman, Editor-in-Chief, is Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Riverside. For his work on “changing how we think about the nature of health, he received the James McKeen Cattell Award from the Association for Psychological Science (APS), the top award for applied scientific research in psychology. His research on disease-prone and self-healing personalities (terms he coined) led to his receipt of the Outstanding Contributions to Health Psychology senior award from the American Psychological Association (APA Division 38). Dr. Friedman attended Yale University, graduating magna cum laude with Honors in psychology. He was awarded a National Science Foundation graduate fellowship at Harvard University, where he received his Ph.D.

Professor Friedman is an elected Fellow of the Academy of Behavioral Medicine Research, an Elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), an elected Fellow of the Society of Behavioral Medicine, and a thrice-elected Fellow of the American Psychological Association. In 2015, he was selected as the Faculty Research Lecturer at the University of California, Riverside, which is “the highest honor that the Academic Senate bestows.

Dr. Friedman’s research centers around the relations of mental and physical health. He has received research grants from the National Institute of Mental Health, the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institute on Aging. His wide-ranging interests and integrative orientation served him well in editing this Encyclopedia.

Devoted also to teaching, Professor Friedman has received many teaching awards, including the Elizabeth Hurlock Beckman Award, for “inspiring students to make a difference in the community. He has also received UC Riverside’s Distinguished Teaching Award and the Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Research mentoring.

Review:

"This comprehensive set 'encompasses all levels of analysis, from the molecular and biological, through the social and family, to the cultural.' Intended for students, practicing clinicians, and research professionals, these articles also prove accessible and useful for lay readers. The excellent survey essays cover such timely topics as Alzheimer's disease, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, HIV/AIDS, and suicide. Alphabetically arranged, signed articles range from ten to 20 pages, with a topic outline, a glossary, cross references, and a bibliography. This is an essential purchase for most health science, academic, and large public libraries." --LIBRARY JOURNAL, BEST REFERENCE SOURCES 1998

"The articles cover a wide range of subjects. As one would expect, there are entries for various disorders and therapies: Alzheimer's disease, behavior therapy, mood disorders, to name a few. Other entries examine traits such as charisma and shyness or discuss problems associated with substances like alcohol and caffeine. Numerous articles focus on the mental health aspects of stressful situations--bereavement, chronic illness, commuting. Neurology is treated in articles such as brain scanning/neuroscanning. In his preface, the editor states that particular attention has also been paid to 'the family and developmental context for mental health and impairment,' evident in articles like family therapy, child sexual abuse, and divorce. This is a fine encyclopedia with a great deal of excellent information on subjects of interest to both professional and educated lay readers. Academic, health science, and large public libraries will find it very useful." --BOOKLIST
