Publishers Description: This second edition of Health and Human Behaviour introduces students in the health professions and biomedical sciences to the different models of thinking around health. Through an examination of psychological, personal and social influences on health, Jones demonstrates that wellness andillness are more than biological states, but are also social and personal events.Human behaviour is central to concepts of perceptions surrounding, and reactions to health, and the text examines the impact of health on behaviour in detail. Development and modification of behaviour is discussed, including motivation, reasoning and other psychological techniques.New co-author, Debra Creedy, brings a nursing perspective to this second edition, and reinforces the links between the theories of health behaviour, and their application in a practical health care setting. Updated case studies demonstrate the importance of an holistic approach to treatingillness, and new pedagogical features throughout encourage students to reflect on their own experiences of health and illness. New coping tips are included which illustrate the importance of self-care during both the study and practice of health care delivery.
