"Demands of managed care and wellness programs require that practitioners and researchers find effective models for behavior change. The Handbook of Health Behavior Change has been updated to direct both care providers and policy makers to the most promising prevention and wellness therapies." "This second edition includes important new findings on prevention topics, like smoking cessation and addictions; on adherence issues among patients with chronic diseases; and on relapse behaviors. Issues associated with HIV are also given special emphasis, as well as behavior change in special populations, including teenagers and ethnic groupings."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
