A truly interdisciplinary approach to the study of health

 

Health Psychology: An Interdisciplinary Approach uses the social ecological perspective to explore the impact of five systems on individual health outcomes: individual, culture/family, social/physical environment, health systems and health policy. In order to provide readers with an understanding of how health affects the individual on a mental and emotional level, the author has taken an interdisciplinary approach, considering the roles of anthropology, biology, economics, environmental studies, medicine, public health, and sociology.

 

MySearchLab is a part of the Ragin program. Research and writing tools, including access to academic journals, help students explore health psychology in even greater depth. To provide students with flexibility, students can download the eText to a tablet using the free Pearson eText app.

 

This title is available in a variety of formats - digital and print. Pearson offers its titles on the devices students love through Pearson's MyLab products, CourseSmart, Amazon, and more.
