Book Description :

' Health psychology is an offer of help, an effort to understand how biological, behavioral, and social factors influence health and illness. As one of the fast-growing sub-specialties, it has now outstripped other divisions of psychology in terms of excitement in the public eye. And yet a new occupation was built on somewhat unrealistic, idealized assumptions. The title of this book was therefore chosen to emphasize the fact that an extensive critique of those assumptions is essential. This book proposes arbitrary boundaries for a discourse on health psychology. The array of subjects is based on two major themes: the foundation of health psychology and the range of disorders where psychological knowledge might benefit the sick; and the question of whether or not health psychology has a systematic and pragmatic structure so as to qualify as a profession. Contents:The Point of Departure: The Pillars of the Health Psychology Edifice‘Bad Boys’ and Prenatal ProgrammingBetween Psychiatry and Medicine: Illness in Search of a PlaceThe Deadly TrioCollective Exaggerated EmotionsA Complementary Point of ViewHolistic Philosophy and a Recipe for Causative GoulashIf Health Psychology is the Answer, What was the Question? Readership: Undergraduates, graduate students, academics, researchers and practitioners in medicine, health science and psychology; members of the public with an interest in science and technology. Keywords:Health Psychology;Medically Unexplained Symptoms;Holistic Psychology and Medicine;PsychopharmacologyReviews:“Professor Myslobodsky has written a thoughtful, scholarly, and entertaining book on disease and health. He punctures many popular balloons belonging to both medicine and psychology, thereby exposing the reader to the vast amount of hot air that has been widely promoted as facts. Both medicine and psychology, it turns out, are professions in process, and their intersection is still to be determined.”Professor E Fuller Torrey The Stanley Medical Research Institute “The Fallacy of Mother's Wisdom should be required reading for every health psychologist and the text for every health psychology course in the country. In addition to its remarkable scholarship, the book has beautiful artwork and a striking cover picture.”Professor Emeritus Irving Maltzman UCLA “This timely and important book critically examines the classic “truths” and “axioms” in psychosomatic medicine and health psychology. Over the last decades, many claims have been made suggesting how serious diseases could be cured by changing mental states , which are flourishing in popular books and TV programs. This book discusses the scientific evidence for such claims, using new techniques, such as functional neuroimaging, where it is possible to provide empirical evidence to back up critical evaluations of the psychosomatic/health psychology axis.”Professor Kenneth Hugdahl University of Bergen, Norway “It is an impressive accomplishment … a delightful read that is at the same time most scholarly in its account of medical history and in its many references to literary works. It is also jam-packed with useful information for the practitioner. Myslobodsky's point of view on the many issues that health psychologists must face with all the new developments in medical science is always refreshing and provocative. The book is fascinating and I learned much from reading it. I recommend it highly.”Elliot S Valenstein Professor Emeritus University of Michigan “His books, ‘Mother’s Wisdom' included, fill me with both knowledge and recognitions of its limits and, even more importantly, they help me think. They transcend professional boundaries, and the writing is good enough that I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in promoting a healthy body, a healthy mind, and even a healthy society.”Professor Pamela J Taylor Co-editor Criminal Behaviour and Mental Health “The final chapter manages to articulate with remarkable clarity the issues that anyone involved in, or interested in, health psychology cannot afford to ignore … this book is so rich in content and so effective in bringing health psychology into the critical light of scientific inquiry.”Journal of Scientific Exploration '

Book Description :

Health psychology is frequently described as behaviour-oriented, public health as system-oriented. This study examines how political participation and health behaviour of individuals on one hand and system behaviour in terms of healthy policy on the other may represent common issues to the two fields. Theoretically it refers to social ecology and health promotion approaches such as community psychology and WHO's Ottawa Charter. Empirically, data gathered within the EU-Biomed2-Project MAREPS in population and policymaker surveys in Belgium, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland are analysed. Besides political participation, results relate to breast cancer early detection, smoking prevention, and physical activity promotion. It is concluded that the co-production of health by policymakers and populations calls for analysis and evaluation of contextual factors for health behaviour and multilevel health promotion action within a public health psychology.

`This is a competently edited, reader-friendly publication which fills a previously empty niche in the market. Every applied psychologist should have a copy well within arm's length' - British Journal of Educational Psychology Applied Psychology: Current Issues and New Directions is an exciting new textbook and a perfect resource for students taking either a focussed degree in applied psychology or a module as part of a wider psychology degree program. Given its breadth of coverage it should also be essential background reading on courses looking in depth at one of the many areas of professional psychological practice. The book is divided into two parts. In Part One, the book reviews the traditional branches of applied psychology (i.e. clinical, educational and occupational psychology); some relative newcomers (counselling psychology, forensic and health psychology); and some less obvious areas (careers guidance, counselling, academia) addressing such issues as training, future trends and developments within each field. Part Two offers discussion of more generic issues facing professional psychologists including the role of research and evidence-based practice in everyday work; trends in higher education; and continuing professional development. The book concludes with a `Round-Table' discussion involving leading psychologists commenting on trends and new directions in their respective fields. Key features of this book: - Consistently pedagogical throughout - chapter summaries, questions for reflection and discussion and annotated further reading in every chapter - Comprehensive coverage - all areas of applied psychology included - Related to the `real world' - by reviewing the issues and offering practical advice, this text should help prospective applied psychologists make informed decisions about their careers.

Book Description :

The exponential growth of clinical psychology since the late 1960s can be measured in part by the extensive-perhaps exhaustive-literature on the subject. This proliferation of writing has continued into the new century, and the field has come to be defined as much by its many topics as its many voices. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Psychology synthesizes these decades of literature in one extraordinary volume. Comprising chapters from the foremost scholars in clinical psychology, the handbook provides even and authoritative coverage of the research, practice, and policy factors that combine to form today's clinical psychology landscape. In addition to core sections on topics such as training, assessment, diagnosis, and intervention, the handbook includes valuable chapters devoted to new and emerging issues in the clinical field, including heath care reforms, cultural factors, and technological innovations and challenges. Each chapter offers a review of the most pertinent literature, outlining current issues and identifying possibilities for future research. Featuring two chapters by Editor David H. Barlow -- one on changes during his own 40-year odyssey in the field, the other projecting ten themes for the future of clinical psychology -- The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Psychology is a landmark publication that is sure to serve as the field's benchmark reference publication for years to come. It is an essential resource for students, clinicians, and researchers across the ever-growing clinical psychology community.
