This encyclopedia was designed with the overarching goal to collect together in a single resource the knowledge generated by this interdisciplinary field, highlighting the links between science and practice. In it, scholars, health care practitioners and the general public will find a wealth of information on topics such as physical activity, stress and health, smoking, pain management, social support and health, cardiovascular health, health promotion, and HIV/AIDS. This two volume set includes more than 200 entries on topics covering all aspects of health and behavior. In addition, this work includes a comprehensive set of additional resources with entries on selected organizations and an appendix with a detailed annotated listing of such organizations as well as Web sites of interest.
"This work fills a niche and does so very well. Academic and large public libraries that are growing reference collections in the fields of psychology, epidemiology and public health, sociology, nursing, medicine, and anthropology will want to add this to their shelves."
