Introduction to Health Psychology in Australia (Original PDF)
This product provides a comprehensive and balanced coverage of health psychology from an Australian and international perspective, one of the only health psychology texts on the market to do so.
With coverage across all mainstream health topics with analyses and evaluations of contemporary issues, the authors present issues then introduce theory and research evidence to assess the relevant interventions.
In addition to the original European focus, the authors believed a comprehensive Australian-focused textbook is required; one that covered some of the health issues unique to Australia. The vast rural and regional areas, indigenous populations, and the high immigrant population, all present particular challenges to our health system that are important to understand and address.
The overall aim of this product is to provide a comprehensive Australian textbook which is firmly grounded in both theory and empirical evidence, with sufficient breadth of material for introductory students, but also sufficient research depth to benefit final-year students or those conducting a health psychology project.
