Welcome to the SAGE companion site for Health Psychology, Fifth Edition!
What factors determine healthy behavior? Health Psychology: Well-being in a Diverse World answers this question by introducing and regularly applying research to stress, coping, interventions and health behaviors in today’s world. Speaking directly to students, Regan A. R. Gurung’s conversational voice guides learners through the key determinants of behavior, such as family, environment, ethnicity, and religion. Each chapter delves into the biological foundations of health, presents interdisciplinary case studies, and integrates personality and social psychological theories, fostering a comprehensive grasp of the subject. Continually asking readers to think further, to synthesize, to analyze, and to apply to improve their own health outcomes as they learn, Gurung empowers students through connections to personal experience. The Fifth Edition offers contemporary reference updates, an expanded focus on intersectional topics across cultures, test yourself practice, and much more.
