Psychology for Health Care Key Terms and Concepts



Psychology for Health Care Key Terms and Concepts by Bridget Adams, Barbara Bromley

This impressive text guides the reader through the myriad of concepts and approaches used in the research and practice of psychology. Concepts, terms and definitions are grouped alphabetically under thematic chapters covering key topics such as aggression, pain, memory, perception, stress. Additionally, different pyschological perspectives are compared, academic and professional issues are discussed and applications to practice are illustrated throughout with up-to-date examples. The text is an invaluable and readily-accessible guide to a complex field for students and experienced health care professionals who are interested in learning more about the psychological aspects of health care.


'Extremely useful! Will be used over and over again.' - Catherine Corr, Bolton Institute 'A must for most students. The book makes the topic come to life.' - Swaleh Toofany, Thames Valley University'

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
