Clinical psychology and heart disease

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Recent findings have demonstrated that psychosocial conditions are linked to heart disease, and that interventions on patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) may reduce morbidity and help them to achieve a better quality of life. The publication offers a thorough and up-to-date review of scientific research supporting evidence of the relationship between cardiac disease and psychological condition, and offers practical suggestions for developing a clinical practice, and directions for future research in the new field of "cardiac psychology". Every chapter is authored by world-renowned researchers in the field. The volume intends to be a theoretical and practical guide for physicians, for clinical and health psychologists, and for all professionals active in the area of care of patients recovering from heart disease; it will be useful also for residents willing to understand the mind-health link.
