A comprehensive textbook covering the theories of health behaviour and their analysis, application value and research potential.
Satisfying a long-standing need for an approachable textbook that brings together the Western and Indian perspective on health psychology, this book coherently presents the knowledge diversified across various narrow sub-fields.
