Summary

This book provides an introduction to key theoretical and methodological issues in developing a critical health psychology. It considers alternatives to the positivist assumptions underlying traditional health psychology, and proposes a reconstructed discipline that on the one hand delves into the experience of health and illness, and on the other engages with the social and political aspects of the subject. Containing carefully edited contributions from key thinkers in the field, it provides a coherent critique of mainstream health psychology.
