This work provides an overview of the development and application of clinical health psychology. Beginning with a discussion of training, assessment, and measurement issues, articles analyze the key behaviors that either affect or are related to health. The book should provide the reader with an introduction to the theoretical background and conceptual frameworks for much of the work in clinical health psychology, followed by a discussion of issues relevant to methodological and professional issues in practical application. The chapters dealing with health-related problems range from problems relevant to health maintenance in healthy people, through chronic disabling conditions to those that are life threatening. They serve to illustrate the range of approaches taken by clinical health psychologists and the diversity of areas of application in this fast developing field.
