Summary

With Straub’s Health Psychology, students explore the interrelationship of psychological and physical well-being, making meaningful connections between health psychology theory and research and their own everyday experience.  Straub explores the main ideas of the field from a biopsychosocial perspective, drawing on the latest research, engaging examples, and thorough considerations of diversity issues as they relate to health psychology (gender, ethnicity, age, orientation).
