“Absolute joy to read”

Click below for a Preview of the Editor’s Introduction and Chapter 1: Matarazzo, J. D. (1982). Behavioral health’s challenge to academic, scientific, and professional psychology. American Psychologist37(1), 1.

`This book was an absolute joy to read and offers a comprehensive review of health psychology…. This book should become a classic – necessary reading for students in all branches of health. Nursing students will find it invaluable, but other students – and their teachers – will also find it very useful. SAGE have added a valuable and important text to their already impressive list, and Marks can be complimented on his scholarly organisation of complex topics into an accessible and readable whole. No library should be without it and serious students should invest in a copy of their own’
