Health Psychology

Four Volume Set
Edited by:


December 2006 | 1 864 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This collection provides a comprehensive and up-to-date synthesis of classic and key publications in the field of Health Psychology. The classic papers are those which have proved to be ground breaking, and have remained highly influential in the discipline long since they were published. The key papers are those, which will provide the reader with a good overview or introduction to a particular area and how it is researched. Thus the collection includes a complementary mix of recent publications and older, classic works, illuminating new directions in the field theoretically and methodologically.

This Major Work consists of 80 papers and is organized into the following four volumes:
Volume 1 Models
Volume 2 Concepts
Volume 3 Methods and Measurements
Volume 4 Applications in Health, Illness and Healthcare

Across the four volumes, the Editors present a wide range of readings in the discipline, including highly cited theoretical articles, empirical articles, as well as some book chapters that have had great impact in terms of presenting research findings and influencing the key debates in the field. These papers have also been selected on the basis of their international impact.

Each of the volumes opens with an introductory editorial essay by the Editors setting out the rationale behind the selection of papers in terms of their historical, theoretical and empirical importance in the development of the field. The net effect is to provide an integrated account of this rapidly developing and expansive discipline.
