Description - Research Methods for Clinical and Health Psychology by David F. Marks

There is a vast array of research methods and statistics books available to the student researcher, some more specialist than others. However, until now no research methods book has been geared specifically to the needs of both clinical and health psychologists in one volume. The rationale is to provide a self-contained book for health and clinical psychology students, researchers and practitioners. The psychology of healthcare is treated as an applied field with special relevance to clinical disorders, disease prevention and health promotion. The research methods described and illustrated are those particularly useful to the field and cover both qualitative and quantitative approaches. These are widely regarded as being the core procedures within the healthcare field. Research Methods for Clinical and Health Psychology has an uncluttered presentation with a clear and concise narrative. Boxes, diagrams and tables highlight key points and provide relevant examples, worked from start to finish, of the procedures used in designing and analyzing studies. Chapter outlines and summaries are provided and also a glossary of useful terms to help students and researchers with independent study and learning. Research Methods for Clinical and Health Psychology will be invaluable reading for clinical and health psychology students and trainees, as well as those in nursing, medical and other healthcare departments taking an advanced psychology option.

Kammann), Theories of Image Formation (1986), Imagery: Current Developments (1990, with J.T.E. Richardson and P. Hampson), The Quit For Life Programme: An Easier Way to Stop Smoking and Not Start Again (1993), Improving the Health of the Nation (1996, with C.

After completing my first degree in psychology I trained and practiced clinically as an audiological scientist (testing and rehabilitating people with hearing and balance difficulties), before moving back into psychology to undertake a PhD. After a brief period as a non-clinical scientist at the MRC Unit in Numan Movement and Balance (National Hospital for Neurology, Queen Square, London). I became a lecturer and then senior lecturer in Psychology as Applied to Medicine at University College London. Returning to my home town of Southampton, I was appointed a Reader and then Professor of Health Psychology. I try to warn people that I have great difficulty recognising faces due to developmental prosopagnosia or 'face-blindness', which neuroscientists are now discovering is more common than was previously thought, affecting about 1 person in 50 ( The main effect of this is to make me appear very rude when I fail to recognise people I have met, so please say Hello when you meet me - I will remember you and our previous meeting, just not your face!
