The second Canadian edition of Health Psychology: Biopsychosocial Interactions integrates multidisciplinary research and theory to help students understand the complex connections between psychology and health. This comprehensive yet accessible textbook covers the biopsychosocial factors that impact human health and wellness, placing particular emphasis on the distinctive characteristics of the Canadian health care system, the issues and challenges unique to Canadian culture, and the most recent Canadian research in the field of health psychology. Clear, student-friendly chapters examine topics such as coping with stress and illness, lifestyles for enhancing health and preventing illness, managing pain and discomfort, getting medical treatment, and living with chronic illness.
This fully revised second edition features the latest available data and research from across Canada and around the world. New and expanded chapters explore psychosocial factors in aging and dying, legalized marijuana use in Canada, the link between inflammation and depression, Canadian psychosocial models of pain, recent Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) legislation, weight control, eating disorders, and exercise, and much more. Throughout the text, updated illustrative examples, cross-cultural references, and real-world cases reinforce key points and strengthen student comprehension, retention, and interest.
