Product Description

This volume provides readers with a succinct introduction to behavioral and psychosocial treatment of the two most prevalent cardiac conditions, coronary heart disease and congestive heart failure. It summarizes the latest research on the intricate relationships between these conditions and psychosocial factors such as stress, depression, and anger, as well as behavioral factors such as physical inactivity and non-adherence to cardiac medication regimens. The book provides practical, evidence-based recommendations and clinical tools for assessing and treating these problems – an indispensable treatment manual for professionals who work with cardiac patients.
