Summary:
"Practicing psychologists and professional graduate students will find this classic guide invaluable for developing specialized expertise in clinical health psychology. The authors, 30-year veterans in the field, provide an overview of the roles and functions of clinical health psychologists as well as the education, training, personal, and professional issues involved. Chapters on assessment, intervention, and counseling with medical colleagues present nuts-and-bolts strategies, case examples, and down-to-earth advice for effective practice. This new edition includes an expanded discussion of psychometric instruments as well as psychological testing with medical patients. The chapter on ethical issues has been completely updated to reflect the 2002 version of the American Psychological Association's "Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct," and the chapter on liability now identifies the highest areas of risk and discusses strategies to reduce liability. All chapters include updated reading lists to guide the practitioner or student interested in further study in targeted areas"--Jacket. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved).
