Description

In Chronic Physical Disorders, the most prominent figures in the field of behavioral medicine argue why a biopsychosocial perspective is crucial to reducing the tremendous personal and societal burden of chronic disease. In Part I of this state of the art text, a broad set of theoretical and applied issues are discussed with respect to the role that research can play in the management of chronic physical disorders. Part II focuses on specific chronic disorders, including chapters on coronary heart disease, cancer, diabetes, chronic pain, HIV and AIDS, end-stage renal disease, asthma, and arthritis. Included in each of these chapters is a basic review of biomedical aspects of each disorder followed by a review of the primary behavioral, psychological, and socioenvironmental issues that are most relevant to a given disorder.
