The essential Canadian text for teaching Health Psychology in Canada.
The Psychology of Health and Health Care, 4th edition, introduces the field of health psychology and will explain how you can apply psychological concepts to health care delivery in Canada. It will not only give you thorough and current coverage of all major topics in Health Psychology in a unique, engaging and readable style, but also provides the critical advantage of being the only ground-up Canadian text available in a subject area that demands Canadian statistics, references and content.
Updated to include the latest research and statistics, a new section on ethics, and new pedagogical features, The Psychology of Health and Health Care is a valuable resource for Canadian students, instructors and practitioners of psychology, nursing, medicine, public health and epidemiology.
