Health psychology is a rapidly expanding discipline at the interface of psychology and clinical medicine. This new edition is fully reworked and revised, offering an entirely up-to-date, comprehensive, accessible, one-stop resource for clinical psychologists, mental health professionals and specialists in health-related matters. There are two new editors: Susan Ayers from the University of Sussex and Kenneth Wallston from Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The prestigious editorial team and their international, interdisciplinary cast of authors have reconceptualised their much-acclaimed handbook. The book is now in two parts: part I covers psychological aspects of health and illness, assessments, interventions and healthcare practice. Part II covers medical matters listed in alphabetical order. Among the many new topics added are: diet and health, ethnicity and health, clinical interviewing, mood assessment, communicating risk, medical interviewing, diagnostic procedures, organ donation, IVF, MMR, HRT, sleep disorders, skin disorders, depression and anxiety disorders.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The new Cambridge Handbook is simply indispensable ... The book will find a wide market. No clinical psychologist is going to want to be without it. Perhaps more importantly, many doctors will continue to dip into it from time to time, since one of the book's virtues is to be written in a generally jargon free manner, accessible to all health professionals. Journalists from the better papers will use it frequently, since it gives a quick synopsis of the current state of play on a vast range of topics which are rarely absent from the health pages. Finally, journal editors will find it a valuable address book when they need referees for the ever increasing flow of research papers in this fascinating field.' Psychological Medicine
'This book is a rich mine of information for the general practitioner ... The day I received it a student came to ask me for advice about essays. Putting the 'encylopaedic handbook' to its first test, we looked up a few keywords. There was a chapter on each one. Bite-size morsels of information, easily digestible, comprehensive. I shall certainly keep this book within easy reach for future reference.' Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine
'Easy to read; a practical book.' Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism
'Health psychology has been an established field of study for some time. The Cambridge Handbook of Psychology, Health and Medicine has been an important tool for its practitioners. The new edition ... appears, on examination, to be more wide-ranging than its predecessor, and likely to be even more useful.' Journal of Mental Health
'The array of topics is bountiful. The articles are tightly written and edifying. If this book were a culinary experience, it would be described as a feast of gourmet samples. ... The Cambridge Handbook of Psychology, Health and Medicine fosters a much-needed appreciation for the treatment of the entire patient, both mind and body.' Journal of the American Medical Association
