Περιγραφή

"Developments in European Health Psychology over the last 20 years have included advances in the theoretical frameworks used, their application to the design of interventions, and the research designs and measures used. This book, “Special Issues in Health Psychology: A Greek Perspective”, reflects these advances, reporting a variety of research methods. These include development of measures of key theoretical constructs within health psychology, analyses of qualitative and quantitative primary data, and reviews of secondary data in published studies.
Health psychology is relevant in all walks of life – schools, workplaces, prisons and communities, as well as in-patient and out-patient health services. This breadth is reflected in the research reported in the following chapters."
    Prof  Susan Michie

Special Issues in Health Psychology provides students and professionals with an in- depth treatment of specific topics within health psychology. The book is divided into two sections, covering good health maintenance, health promotion, and disease prevention, as well as illness behaviour and health- care quality.
