Description


This working reference manual for primary health care providers and health psychologists first discusses how to perform an effective clinical interview of the patient, practical psychometric assessment procedures and other issues. Detailed chapters then address the most important medical conditions dealt with by psychologists, such as cardiovascular and respiratory disorders, chronic pain, diabetes, endocrine and gastrointestinal problems, AIDS, MS and obstetric and gynecological conditions. The authors also discuss in detail how to promote effective methods which enable patients to cope with their medical conditions, including individual, group and community involvement with traditional and alternative health methods, as well as risk reduction in minority populations.
