Each chapter includes learning objectives, case studies with accompanying reflection questions, critical thinking activities and a detailed summary to consolidate learning.
The comprehensive glossary and links to online resources solidify understanding of key concepts and ideas.
Written with a focus on respectful advocacy of health promotion, Health Psychology in Australia provides psychology and allied health students with a comprehensive understanding of the role of the health psychologist as clinician, researcher, educator and client.
