The Handbook of Health Psychology is considered the handbook of health psychology. It represents the state-of-the-science in the field by covering basic processes as well as cross-cutting issues and applications to the study of specific diseases. The editors offer a great balance of expertise with one noted for their work in the bio-behavioral components and the other for the psychosocial/sociocultural issues. As in the first edition, the contributors include the top researchers and rising stars in field. Thoroughly updated throughout, the second edition features: * Two new sections, one on risk and protective factors for disease and the other on macro-level factors that affect health, such as socioeconomic status. * A more consistent structure in each chapter including an Overview, History, Methodology, Conclusion, Suggestions for Further Research, and References. More on prevention and/or interventions and treatment in the applications sections. The handbook serves as a primary textbook in graduate level courses in health psychology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

I teach an undergraduate health psychology class and I would make it a recommended purchase." - Regan A. R. Gurung, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, USA

"The authors chosen for the chapters are the "who 's who" in health psychology it serves as an excellent reference tool. The book will make a significant contribution to the field." - Beverly E. Thorn, University of Alabama

"The current edition and the revision plan represent the best we have in the field. In terms of theoretical and research contributions, this book is far ahead of its competitors. Contributors are seminal scholars in the field of health psychology. I would adopt the revision for a graduate seminar of upper level graduate students." Cheryl A. Armstead, University of South Carolina and SC Cancer Prevention and
