Health Psychology provides students and teachers of AQA(B) A2 level psychology with a comprehensive, accessible and learning-oriented textbook. It follows the style of the popular AQA(B) core textbooks for AS and A2 level, Introducing Psychology and Advanced Psychology.

Within the four chapters of Health Psychology, full coverage is given to the Unit 4 topic areas:

Health and Illness

Psychological Aspects of Illness

Lifestyles and Health

Stress and Stress Management

At the end of each chapter specimen questions are provided, written in the AQA Specification B examination style. One question in each chapter also has a sample answer and comments on how to improve.

Health Psychology is the ideal textbook for this option of the AQA(B) A2 syllabus. It also provides the interested reader with an excellent introduction to this important area of psychology.
