What do we know about health in other countries? How can we use explanations from health psychology to understand health issues around the world? In Health Psychology in Global Perspective, author Frances E. Aboud uses health psychology to examine the health issues facing developing countries and compares them with issues faced by people in developed countries. She uses a psychosocial perspective rather than the typical biomedical and anthropological perspectives usually applied to health issues in developing countries and integrates diverse literature from a variety of disciplines, including, epidemiology, psychology, education, anthropology, and nursing. Accessible to a broad audience, this volume brings mainstream health psychology concepts to bear on the problems of international health and cross-cultural issues to bear on concepts and theories in mainstream health psychology. It also incorporates a number of pedagogical features+â-¦case vignettes, problem solving/debate exercises, case studies+â-¦which make it an ideal supplemental text for courses in health psychology. Students will appreciate the extended case studies, while instructors will value the multidisciplinary perspective. A thought-provoking examination of the state of knowledge about health in developing countries, Health Psychology in Global Perspective is a valuable resource for academics and professionals in health psychology, psychology, cross-cultural psychology, clinical psychology, social psychology, anthropology, and public health.
