An essential text for both graduate and undergraduate health psychology courses, the authors elegantly and comprehensively explore health psychology in the 21st century. The fifth edition further advances a critical perspective on health while introducing readers to emerging issues such as long-term conditions and end-of-life care.
Marks and colleagues' capacity to provide a global perspective, while including elements of social justice, with a consideration of the social and political determinants of health, makes this text an invaluable companion when introducing undergraduates to the field of health psychology.
I am responsible for a Health psychology course offered at a postgraduate level in Public Health. My students have limited previous "exposure" to Health Psychology. For this reason I found that the particular text book combines both the introductory necessary knowledge for Health psychology and the necessary "depth" required for a postgraduate level of studies.
Fantastic resource with some contentious and challenging concepts for healthcare professionals
