Retaining the celebrated critical approach that has been a hallmark of this book, the Third Edition now incorporates research from a fuller range of perspectives including more mainstream, evidence-based approaches. The book continues to offer more community psychological and sociological viewpoints on disease prevention and health promotion than any other textbook for this course.

Key features of the third edition include four brand new chapters in the book on Theories, Models and Interventions Aplied to Sexual Helth; Information and Communication; Health Literacy; Community and Alternative Approaches, extensive pedagogical features, including chapter outlines and summaries of key ideas, and guidelines for further research. Boxed case studies, tables and figures and cutting edge research are integrated throughout to aid students′ understanding of this fascinating field; a new accompanying companion website with a full suite of instructor materials and online readings for students.

Review:

'The book provides an excellent foundation to health psychology. It brings readers up to date with past controversies and current difficulties and suggests areas for further research to promote positive health behaviours and a healthy nation' - Janette C Allotey, Nurse Researcher `This text provides a useful and refreshing addition to health psychology texts with a very applied social, and cultural focus. It would make a useful addition to any undergraduate or Masters course in health psychology' -British Journal of Health Psychology
