[en] The book describes in uniformly structured chapters the foundations and the application of psychological assessment and treatment approaches for 8 chronic physical conditions: cardiovascular disorders, COPD, obesity, diabetes, cancer, HIV, musculo-skeletal disorders and chronic pain, and neurological conditions.

It is unique in its practical approach by giving advice on empirically based methods from Clinical and Health Psychology. It is also rare to find a monograph on this topic, as most volumes are edited books that attempt to provide a more detailed account of current research, which is usually out-dated by the time the book is published. The current monograph draws almost exclusively on meta-analyses rather than to “get lost in detail”, thereby providing a solid and more lasting empirical foundation that is translated into recommendations for daily practice. It is also low-cost and user friendly as supporting material (e.g. assessment methods, therapeutic formulations, case histories etc.) is published as pdf via the publisher’s web-site.
