Produktbeschreibung
Behavioral medicine emerged in the 1970s as the interdisciplinary field concerned with the integration of behavioral, psychosocial, and biomedical science knowledge relevant to the understanding of health and illness, and the application of this knowledge to prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. Recent years have witnessed an enormous diversification of behavioral medicine, with new sciences (such as genetics, life course epidemiology) and new technologies (such as neuroimaging) coming into play. This book brings together such new developments by providing an up-to-date compendium of methods and applications drawn from the broad range of behavioral medicine research and practice. The book is divided into 10 sections that address key fields in behavioral medicine. Each section begins with one or two methodological or conceptual chapters, followed by contributions that address substantive topics within that field. Major health problems such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, HIV/AIDs, and obesity are explored from multiple perspectives. The aim is to present behavioral medicine as an integrative discipline, involving diverse methodologies and paradigms that converge on health and well being.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:
"This book is squarely targeted at anyone involved in the delivery of behavioral medicine services, which includes both experienced practitioners and students of related disciplines. ... The editors and contributing authors have admirably assembled a definitive reference in behavioral medicine that is far more comprehensive than anything on the market today. It would be difficult to justify one's existence as a behavioral medicine specialist without this in one's professional library." (Christopher J. Graver, Doody's Review Service, March, 2012)
