Psychology Builds a Healthy
World covers the entire domain of psychological health from the family, to
the workplace, to the community. Geared toward health psychologists and
students, as well as those practitioners and researchers working with families,
communities, and in the workplace, this book offers ideas and areas for
expansion of research and practice.
This volume highlights the many ways in which psychologists can help build
healthy families, healthy communities, and healthy workplaces. Distinguished
contributors examine medical and behavioral health activities to prevent
illness, injury, and trauma; identify key biopsychosocial factors in acute and
chronic illness across the developmental life span; and discuss the health
implications in work, family, and social relationships.
