Description - Handbook of Clinical Health Psychology by Susan Llewelyn
The Handbook of Clinical Health Psychology provides a comprehensive
overview of the practice of clinical health psychology. It is
primarily a well-referenced but practical resource, which provides
an authoritative, up-to-date guide to empirically validated
psychological interventions in health care.
Each contributor provides a conceptual synthesis of the area, and
how key models are related to formulation, service delivery and
research. The book also considers contextual issues and the
importance of topics such as ageism and power, which may have an
impact on how health psychology is delivered by practitioners, and
experienced by recipients of services.
It also seeks to provide a summary of evidence concerning crucial
aspects in the delivery of care, such as adherence, rehabilitation
and stress. The biopsychosocial model is the major theoretical
model underpinning all contributions, but use is also made of other
* Informative and practical: a guide to action
* An authoritative, critical and evidence based synthesis of
knowledge that will guide best practice
* Easy-to-use format intended for practitioners who want to ensure
their practice is state-of-the-art
