From the Back Cover:

There is a remarkable diversity in the study and practice of health psychology today.

As yet there is no resource that delineates this vibrant and growing field, nor the overarching principles and approaches that apply to it. This book does both, while showcasing, with individual stories from contributors, how health psychologists apply theory to real-world problems in practice. It details the challenges and opportunities that psychologists in non-mental health specialties face, and how they deal with them. 

Including contributions from academics and industry professionals, the book is structured with the Stage 2 competences for health psychologists in mind. It provides career advice, support for health professionals, and a resource for further research, as well as offering a much-needed benchmark by which to judge future health psychology professionals. This is the definitive guide to a complex and vital discipline.
