Health Psychology
Theory, Research and Practice

Sixth Edition
Additional resources:


November 2020 | 680 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Health Psychology provides students with the tools they need to evaluate and critically appraise theory and research before it can be applied practically. Using the most up-to-date research available, the sixth edition places an emphasis on the real-world application of health psychology, demonstrating how theory learnt in the classroom influences public policy.

In this book, David Marks, Michael Murray and Emee Vida Estacio take a holistic approach to health psychology, giving equal weight to the biological, psychological and social factors that impact health behaviour, culture and change. The text presents students with an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the field of health psychology and is supported by online resources for students and lecturers, including a range of case studies taken from across the world.
