Description

This work covers the domain of psychological health from the family, to the workplace, to the community. It highlights the ways in which psychologists can help build healthy families, healthy communities, and healthy workplaces. Contributors examine medical and behavioural health activities to prevent illness, injury and trauma. They identify key biopsychosocial factors in acute and chronic illness across the developmental life span, and discuss the health implications in work, family, and social relationships.
