This textbook assumes no prior knowledge of psychology, and works through a series of topics and debates towards an understanding of human health and the psychological nature of it. A wide range of health psychology issues are covered, such as pain, stress, health behaviours and communicating with patients, as well as the more unusual but salient topics of palliative care and psychometric testing in a health context. All these areas of investigation are illustrated with examples of real illness states and the psychological contributions to them, including dental health examples.


Introduction The biology of health and illness Perceptions, beliefs and cognitions Differences between people Stress and health The appetites Communication and behaviour Psychometrics and the measurement of health and illness Chronic illness, palliative care and death Screening, vaccination and other procedures Mind and body, placebo and pain Glossary References Indexes
