In today's diverse society, health professionals require a complete understanding of how physiological, social and psychological factors impact physical wellbeing. Health Psychology in Australia provides a contemporary, relevant perspective on the unique climate in which this increasingly important area of healthcare is practised in Australia. Drawing on the expertise of the author team, this book gives students the skills to identify and evaluate health risk factors and to intervene in and manage health behaviour. Each chapter includes learning objectives, case studies with accompanying reflection questions, critical thinking activities and a detailed summary to consolidate learning. The comprehensive glossary and links to online resources solidify understanding of key concepts and ideas. Written with a focus on respectful advocacy of health promotion, Health Psychology in Australia provides psychology and allied health students with a comprehensive understanding of the role of the health psychologist as clinician, researcher, educator and client.
