Understanding the basics of psychology – what drives human choices and behaviours – underpins good practice in health. Psychology: An Introduction for Health Professionals presents the latest relevant theories and concepts, as well as their application to specific health issues and clinical practice.

Written by Deb O’Kane and other leading experts in the field, this book will help you understand more about why people act in certain ways related to their health and wellbeing, from diagnoses, health interventions and outcomes. For example, why does a person not complete a full course of antibiotics, or how can you expect a someone to respond to stress, loss or pain? Scenarios and reflection questions help to bring important psychology concepts to life.

The book is written specifically for health science and nursing students undertaking discreet units of study in psychology, but will also be applicable to practitioners in their daily work.
