Description - Health and Human Behaviour by Ken Jones

Health and Human Behaviour, third edition, introduces students in the health professions and biomedical sciences to the different models of thinking around health. Through an examination of psychological, personal and social influences on health, the authors demonstrate that wellness and illness are more than biological states, but are also social and personal events. Debra Creedy brings a nursing perspective and reinforces the links between the theories of health behaviour, and their application in a practical health care setting. Updated case studies demonstrate the importance of an holistic approach to treating illness, and new pedagogical features throughout encourage students to reflect on their own experiences of health and illness.NEW TO THIS EDITIONA new four part structure: Foundations of Health and Behaviour, Health and Risky Behaviour, Psychophysiological Aspects of Health and Factors Affecting Health and Behaviour.
