The Oxford Handbook of Rehabilitation Psychology, Hardback Book

The Oxford Handbook of Rehabilitation Psychology Hardback

Edited by Paul Kennedy

Part of the Oxford Library of Psychology series

Description

Rehabilitation psychology is one of the fastest growing fields in applied psychology and involves the application of psychological knowledge and skills to the understanding and treatment of individuals with physical disabilities. Rehabilitation psychologists aim to optimize outcomes in terms of health, independence, and daily functioning while also minimizing secondary health problems. The Oxford Handbook of Rehabilitation Psychology provides background and overview of the associated psychological processes and types of interventions that are critical in managing the consequences of disability and chronic disease.

Psychological models and research have much to contribute to those working with the physical disabilities; this volume has a broad cognitive behavioral focus within the general banner of the biopsychosocial framework.

The editor has successfully broughttogether contributions from a range of well-established and experienced researchers and practitioners from a wide variety of clinical and academic contexts.

They highlight the critical psychological aspects, review applied interventions, and consider the wider conceptual, clinical and professional themesassociated with disability and society.
