Practical psychological methods to encourage healthy behaviour

Lifestyle diseases are the scourge of the modern Western world.  Smoking, eating badly, not exercising, excessive drinking: these are but a few of the major challenges facing the NHS. People understand why these habits are bad for them, and most people understand how to tackle them so why is it that so many people dont have a healthy lifestyle? And, more importantly, how can we change this?

This book is designed for healthcare professionals of all types, at any stage in their career. It addresses the role psychology can play in reversing poor lifestyles, putting theory into practice in the most effective and simple ways.  

Including case studies, evidence based practical suggestions and key points, the text will provide an invaluable resource for all of those involved in lifestyle change.

This is a timely book that has generic relevance across all branches and strands of nursing.  I think such a text will make an innovative contribution to the nursing literature currently available, and help nurses to play a proactive, skilled role in health promotion. Dr Sue Read, Keele University
