'A fantastic contribution to health psychology. My PhD students and medical students are instructed to read it (not often I recommend books these days). It feels like the field has been waiting for this for a long time' - Dr Lis Cordingley

Senior Lecturer in Health Psychology, School of Medicine, University of Manchester

 

An engaging introduction to the interrelationships between mind and body across a broad range of topics including infectious illness, autoimmunity, cancer and pain. Taking a biopsychosocial approach, it brings together research from a number of disciplines including health psychology, psychoneuroimmunology and behavioural genetics.

 

Students are encouraged to consider how advances in psychobiological research can help us to uncover the true complexity of links between psychological, biological and social processes with respect to implications for health and how such advances can inform the development of interventions and treatment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for health care practioners and students 6 Sep 2011
By Sydney Sports Therapy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a great resource for any student or practitioner seeking a better understanding of the complexity of health and illness.

Dr Kate Hamilton- West discusses the relationship between the psychological and biological factors of health and illness in a way which is both engaging and practical. The book goes beyond the common examination of symptom and remedy and presents a much more in depth and relevant approach to patient focused therapy.

This book has made a real difference to my professional approach in patient care. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is considering a career in the health care industry.
