Overview

This volume explores the psychological assessment and treatment of several prevalent physical disorders or conditions, which serve to illustrate the vast potential for psychological intervention in these traditionally medical areas: irritable bowel syndrome, hypertension, headache, asthma, dermatological disorders, Raynaud's disease and phenomenon, rheumatoid arthritis, temporomandibular disorders, diabetes mellitus, and premenstrual syndromes.

For each disorder, leading experts discuss epidemiology and etiology—psychological and behavioral factors, in particular—along with a range of assessment and treatment issues.

This softcover edition is a re-release of the 1993 hardcover edition.
