Annotation

Health and Human Behaviour, third edition, is a comprehensive introduction to the psychological, physiological and sociological concepts related to health and illness.

Publisher Description

The third edition of Health and Human Behaviour introduces students in the health professions and biomedical sciences to the different models of thinking around health. Through an examination of psychological, personal and social influences on health, the authors demonstrate that wellness and illness are more than biological states, but are also social and personal events.Debra Creedy brings a nursing perspective and reinforces the links between the theories of health behaviour, and their application in a practical health care setting. Updated case studies demonstrate the importance of an holistic approach to treating illness, and new pedagogical features throughout encourage students to reflect on their own experiences of health and illness.New to this edition: A new four part structure: Foundations of Health and Behaviour, Health and Risky Behaviour, Psychophysiological Aspects of Health and Factors Affecting Health and Behaviour. This includes the lifespan in the first part (chapters on Childhood and Adolescent Development, Adult Development and Ageing). Two new chapters: Chapter 9 - A Complex Example: Eating, Exercise and Body; Chapter 15 - Health Literacy. Progressive case studies throughout each chapter have been expanded. There is now also a long case study at the end of each chapter.
