This textbook gives a clear and thought-provoking introduction to the critical issues related to health, illness and disability in clinical and health psychology. Challenging some of the preconceptions of ill-health of the biomedical approach, the book explores how health and illness is often shaped by factors such as culture, poverty, gender and sexuality, and examines how these influences impact on the experience and treatment of physical and mental illness as well as disability. Students are introduced to literature from disciplines other than psychology to provide multiple perspectives on these complex issues.

The Handbook of Clinical Health Psychology provides a comprehensive overview of the practice of clinical health psychology. It is primarily a well-referenced but practical resource, which provides an authoritative, up-to-date guide to empirically validated psychological interventions in health care. Each contributor provides a conceptual synthesis of the area, and how key models are related to formulation, service delivery and research. The book also considers contextual issues and the importance of topics such as ageism and power, which may have an impact on how health psychology is delivered by practitioners, and experienced by recipients of services. It also seeks to provide a summary of evidence concerning crucial aspects in the delivery of care, such as adherence, rehabilitation and stress. The biopsychosocial model is the major theoretical model underpinning all contributions, but use is also made of other models. * Informative and practical: a guide to action * An authoritative, critical and evidence based synthesis of knowledge that will guide best practice * Easy-to-use format intended for practitioners who want to ensure their practice is state-of-the-art

Why did critical health psychology emerge? How have categories of social class and gender impacted on social identities? Where can health policy go from here, and how will health psychology inform its development? With contributions from leading experts in the field, this book deepens our understanding of health psychology at a time where traditional approaches are being rethought. Covering contemporary issues and with a focus on both mainstream and non-traditional areas, including material on social identities and social class, gender, and leadership in the NHS, the book provides cutting edge coverage of theory and research. Crucially, the book considers how theory impacts on practice and how health psychology can ignite change in health policy. Covering important issues with clear and fresh insight, this is indispensable reading for students, researchers and practitioners of health psychology, health studies and public health.

1980 hielt man einen Menschen für normal, wenn er ein Jahr lang um einen nahen Angehörigen trauerte. 1994 empfahl man Psychiatern mindestens zwei Monate Trauerzeit abzuwarten, bevor man Traurigkeit, Schlaflosigkeit, Konzentrationsstörungen und Apathie als behandlungsbedürftige Depression einstufte. Mit dem neuen Katalog psychischer Störungen ›DSM 5‹ wird ab Mai 2013 empfohlen, schon nach wenigen Wochen die Alarmglocken zu läuten. Vor einer Inflation der Diagnosen in der Psychiatrie warnt deshalb der international renommierte Psychiater Allen Frances. Er zeigt auf, welche brisanten Konsequenzen die Veröffentlichung haben wird: Alltäg-liche und zum Leben gehörende Sorgen und Seelenzustände werden als behandlungsbedürftige, geistige Krankheiten kategorisiert. Verständlich und kenntnisreich schildert Allen Frances, was diese Änderungen bedeuten, wie es zu der überhandnehmenden Pathologisierung allgemein-menschlicher Verhaltensweisen kommen konnte, welche Interessen dahinterstecken und welche Gegenmaßnahmen es gibt. Ein fundamentales Buch über Geschichte, Gegenwart und Zukunft psychiatrischer Diagnosen sowie über die Grenzen der Psychiatrie – und ein eindrückliches Plädoyer für das Recht, normal zu sein.
