Encyclopedia of health and behavior
"The encyclopedic title of Anderson's fine work signals its comprehensiveness and usefulness as a handbook for the discipline. . . . This encyclopedia's expert authors cover the key theories, ideas, and factors, that link psychology and health. An excellent organization facilitates multiple entry points. Highly recommended."
This A-to-Z Encyclopedia was designed with the overarching goal to collect together in a single resource the knowledge generated by this interdisciplinary field, highlighting the links between science and practice. In it, scholars, health care practitioners, and the general public will find a wealth of information on topics such as physical activity, stress and health, smoking, pain management, social support and health, cardiovascular health, health promotion, and HIV/AIDS.
This two-volume set includes over 200 entries on topics covering all aspects of health and behavior. In addition, the Encyclopedia of Health and Behavior includes a comprehensive set of additional resources with both entries on selected organizations and an appendix with a detailed annotated listing of such organizations as well as Web sites of interest.

Encyclopedia of health and behaviorUser Review - Book Verdict
Since the 1980s, health and behavior research has focused on the interaction of "behavioral, psychological, emotional, social, cultural, and biological factors with physical outcomes." Current reference and consumer health books (e.g., Encyclopedia of Public Health , Gale Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine ) focus on only some of the above. Anderson (Emotional Longevity ) has compiled about 200 articles that introduce American biobehavioral medicine, policies, and practice largely through individual scientific reviews. The result is a collection of "snapshots" of current biomedical thought in behavioral medicine. Arranged alphabetically by topic, the articles are also categorized by broad subjects, listed in a reader's guide. A third of them focus on specific risk and protection factors (e.g., asthma, cancer, happiness). Others cover basic process, theory and methods (e.g., health beliefs and self-efficacy), assessment and treatment (e.g., behavior analysis, health care costs), biopsychosocial interactions (e.g., anger measurement and exhaustion), and health promotion/disease prevention (e.g., complementary medicine and violence prevention). Most essays include research summaries, hypotheses (often conflicting), suggestions for further study, and reading lists. The 280 authors are listed with affiliations but not credentials. Bottom Line Although entries on risk behavior, individual development, environmentally induced gene expression, and general research methodologies are lacking, this is otherwise a comprehensive treatment of the subject. Recommended for medium to large academic and medical libraries and large public libraries.--Janice Flahiff, Medical Coll. Lib. of Ohio, Toledo
