A fully updated edition of an important psychology text for nursing and health science students.

This fully updated second edition of Psychology for Health Professionals is written specifically for health science and nursing students in Australia and New Zealand.

Authored by the highly regarded Patricia Barkway, with a diverse range of expert contributors, this Elsevier text interprets psychology for nurses, as well as for students of paramedicine, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, public health, pharmacy, psychology, social work and midwifery.

Psychology for Health Professionals 2e examines essential psychological theories, placing them within a social context. Acknowledging increasing awareness that behaviour is influenced as much by external factors as biological and psychological ones, the book’s first half outlines psychological, lifespan and social theories, then applies them to contemporary health issues in later chapters.

A key focus of this leading psychology textbook is examining individual personality and psychological theory within the social context of people’s lives.   New content includes current, evidence-based research, references and clinical examples relevant to interdisciplinary, contemporary healthcare practice. Issues of cultural safety and awareness have been strengthened throughout; there is a new section on chronic illness and a focus on recovery.

This introductory psychology text does not assume its readers will have prior 'psychology' knowledge, yet it can easily be used well beyond first-year university.

"The material covered [in the various chapters] is undoubtedly relevant, up to date, and has some nice features; the emphasis on social inequalities and cultural factors as important considerations for those involved in the delivery of healthcare is particularly good." Reviewed by: British Journal of Occupational Therapy    Date: Nov 2014

Review:

"Patricia Barkway offers a fresh approach to phychology in health care, emphasising that the behaviour of an individual is influenced by biological, psychological and social factors...This well-referenced text provides a range of tools to apply psychology effectively in the health care setting.

Nursing Standard, 16 June 2010

"This well condensed text (only 292 pages) succeeds in covering most topics effectively, while reserving space for critical thinking exercises, reviews, case studies, and classroom activities...This book provides a useful compendium of topics health care professionals need to know about." Nurse Education in Practice, January 2010 "The material covered [in the various chapters] is undoubtedly relevant, up to date, and has some nice features; the emphasis on social inequalities and cultural factors as important considerations for those involved in the delivery of healthcare is particularly good."

Book Description Elsevier Australia, Australia, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book provides an introduction to psychology for allied health students and it encourages an understanding of the complex and interactive nature of the factors which influence an individual s health behaviours and health outcomes. Through the use of real life examples, contemporary research and case studies students will be able to apply the material in the text to the health behaviours of the people they care for, their colleagues and themselves. Unlike many health psychology textbooks this new book examines individual personality and psychological theory within the social context of people s lives. This approach is taken because of the increasing awareness that a person s behaviour is not only influenced by internal biological and psychological factors, but also by external factors within the person s social and physical environment. The first half of the book outlines psychological and other relevant theory whilst in the second half those theories are applied to health issues and healthcare practice. Chapters 1-5 presents psychological, lifespan and social theory; chapter 6 addresses the role and contribution of research to healthcare practice; and chapters 7-13 covers the psychological aspects of specific health encounters, issues and interventions. The material covered [in the various chapters] is undoubtedly relevant, up to date, and has some nice features; the emphasis on social inequalities and cultural factors as important considerations for those involved in the delivery of healthcare is particularly good.
