'This well thought out textbook is realistic and relevant particularly in an era when we may not be the best exemplars of health ourselves, this book offers an understanding of this. Traditional theory is explained clearly but it is in the application to health behaviours that it comes alive. The writing style makes it easy to understand and engage with.'

-- John Carson, Senior Lecturer

'An easy to read and logically laid out textbook which supports the learning of the psychology of health in relation to nursing and midwifery practice. This book, through the use of case studies, reflective activities and consolidation of learning highlights the role of psychology in nursing and midwifery practice.'

-- Donald Todd

'The research academic, the lecturer, the practitioner and the student can be fully confident that this logical, interesting and fascinating text is a welcome addition to health and social care professionals' research evidence knowledge, educational development and consolidation of learning in relation to Health Psychology. It's an excellent resource.'

-- Karen Wild, Lecturer (Adult Nursing)
