Behavioral medicine emerged in the 1970s as the interdisciplinary field concerned with the integration of behavioral, psychosocial, and biomedical science knowledge relevant to the understanding of health and illness, and the application of this knowledge to prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation.  Recent years have witnessed an enormous diversification of behavioral medicine, with new sciences (such as genetics, life course epidemiology) and new technologies (such as neuroimaging) coming into play. This book brings together such new developments by providing an up-to-date compendium of methods and applications drawn from the broad range of behavioral medicine research and practice. The book is divided into 10 sections that address key fields in behavioral medicine. Each section begins with one or two methodological or conceptual chapters, followed by contributions that address substantive topics within that field. Major health problems such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, HIV/AIDs, and obesity are explored from multiple perspectives. The aim is to present behavioral medicine as an integrative discipline, involving diverse methodologies and paradigms that converge on health and well being.

From the Back Cover:

Handbook of Behavioral Medicine Methods and Applications Andrew Steptoe, Editor

From assessment technologies to clinical trials, and from the biobehavioral to the psychosocial, behavioral medicine continues to diversify. This sophisticated understanding of health and illness, and its real-world applications, is taking on an increasingly global significance resulting in great advances on the diagnostic, prevention, and intervention fronts. At the same time, new public health concerns (e.g., obesity, stress) are driving the field in promising new directions. The Handbook of Behavioral Medicine surveys established and emerging investigative areas, plus their clinical and research applications, across the range of the discipline. Written by esteemed fellows of the Academy of Behavioral Medicine Research, this comprehensive resource is designed for long-term practicality, reflecting the current evolution toward integrative, multidisciplinary medicine. Focusing on methodologies and applications across medical conditions rather than discrete symptoms and syndromes, the Handbook offers authoritative, innovative coverage in these core areas:

Genetic processes.

Behavioral processes and measures.

Psychological processes and measures.

Social and interpersonal processes.

Biological measures and biomarkers.

Behavioral and psychosocial interventions.

Plus epidemiological perspectives, life course approaches, cutting-edge statistical methods, and the latest advances in neuroscience and neuroimaging.

This wide-ranging scope will benefit a broad cross-section of professional readers, including behavioral medicine researchers in health psychology, psychiatry, clinical medicine, nursing, human physiology and immunology, epidemiology, and public health; and practitioners in behavioral medicine and health education. In addition, the Handbook of Behavioral Medicine is essential reading for graduate and doctoral students in behavioral medicine and health psychology.
