Theoretical Innovations in Social and Personality Psychology and Implications for Health
About the special issue
This special highlights major areas of innovation in recent social/personality psychology that hold promise for synergistic integration with health psychology and related fields in the pursuit of adequate health promotion, health care, and population health. The desired outcome is to excite interest and new ways of thinking that, in turn, spawn programs of research poised to advance both theory and practice.
Each of the articles reinforces a culture of science in which psychologists of all stripes (social, personality, health, clinical, and others) can work collaboratively to develop stronger models and testable hypotheses with clear applications to enduring health problems.
