This third edition 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, the authors demonstrate that wellness andillness are more than biological states, but are also social and personal events. The text reinforces the links between the theories of health behaviour, and their application in a practical health care setting.
