Complementary Medicine and Health Psychology - used book

ISBN: 9780335220113

ID: 1042345

This book, aimed at postgraduates and healthcare professionals and academics, is the first ever work to apply health psychology to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in a systematic and open-minded fashion. The authors, all health psychologists with considerable experience in the field, take an objective view of the nature of CAM, explaining the often semi-mystical background to some CAM approaches, and identifying where psychology can help to answer some crucial questions, such as why CAM sometimes appears to work, why sometimes it does not, and why some people are drawn to it and others not. In the nine chapters, the authors deal with contemporary meanings of health and illness and the differences and similarities between orthodox and complementary approaches to health, models of the person, health beliefs and experimental psychology, placebo, research methods in CAM, stress, coping and stress management, pain, chronic illness, communications and interactions between client and therapist, and the future for CAM and health psychology. CAM approaches are often dismissed out of hand by scientist-practitioners, but psychologists should, arguably, take a more sympathetic stance, since the psychological professions ought to be keen to understand why CAM is so popular, in its various cultural forms around the world, regardless of its actual efficacy as demonstrated by the research so far conducted. The authors argue that as a human phenomenon alone, CAM is undeniably important.

Complementary Medicine and Health Psychology - new book

ISBN: 9780335220113

ID: 978033522011

This unique book is the first to bring together the world of health psychology with that of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). The authors draw on their wealth of experience as health psychologists to explore the relationship between health psychology and CAM and look at how an understanding of one can be used to inform the other. Through an open-minded but rigorous approach to CAM, the authors identify where psychology can help to answer some crucial questions, such as why CAM sometimes appears to work, why sometimes it does not, and why some people are drawn to it and others not.Key topics covered include:models of the personhealth beliefs and experimental psychology placeboresearch methods in CAMstress, coping and stress managementpain and chronic illnesscommunications and interactions between client and therapistWhile CAM has often been dismissed out of hand by scientists, the authors maintain that it deserves attention as a psychological phenomenon alone, regardless of the actual efficacy as understood by existing research.This book''s insightful observations on contemporary meanings of health and illness and the future of CAM and health psychology make it important reading for all psychologists and health professionals.
