Social Psychology of Health by William D. Marelich

Book Description

This reader provides an integrative approach to understanding health psychology focused around social psychological principles. The 26 readings are grouped into five sections. The first, foundational section includes an overview of the multiple disciplines and perspectives that contribute to theory and research in health psychology and behavioural medicine: psychology, sociology, epidemiology, and public health. The remaining four sections cover major topics within the field of health psychology, mirroring the major topical coverage of most introductory health psychology textbooks, from health attitude change to the health-care setting, stress and coping and social relationships, and health policy.
