A Biopsychosocial Approach

Richard O. Straub (University of Michigan-Dearborn)

  • ISBN-10: 1-319-06741-7; ISBN-13: 978-1-319-06741-0; Format: e-Book Agency, 650 pages

Straub’s Health Psychology shows students how psychology and health are interconnected.  The text encourages students to make meaningful connections between the science of health psychology and their own everyday experience.  The text is comprehensive in its approach, includes in engaging real world examples, and thoroughly examines the intersection of diversity and health with regard to gender, ethnicity, age, and orientation.

Health Psychology incorporates the latest research and uses the biopsychosocial perspective as it  explores the main ideas of the field and models a scientific way of thinking about those ideas.
