This Handbook fulfils a pressing need within the area of psychological measurement in diabetes research and practice by providing access to material which has either been widely dispersed through the psychological and medical literature or has not previously been published. Journal articles describing the psychometric development of scales have rarely included the scales themselves but this book includes copies of scales and a wealth of additional information from unpublished theses, reports and recent manuscripts. You will find information about the reliability, validity, scoring, norms, and use of the measures in previous research presented in one volume. The Handbook is designed to help researchers and clinicians: · To select scales suitable for their purposes · To administer and score the scales correctly · To interpret the results appropriately. Dr. Clare Bradley is Reader in Health Psychology and Director of the Diabetes Research Group at Royal Holloway, University of London. Dr. Bradley and her research group have designed, developed and used a wide variety of measures of psychological processes and outcomes. Many of these measures have been designed and developed specifically for people with diabetes. Together with diabetes-specific psychological measures developed by other researchers internationally, these instruments have played an important part in facilitating patient-centred approaches to diabetes research and clinical practice.

Psychosocial issues have long been acknowledged to have a crucial role in the successful treatment of people with diabetes.

Written jointly by psychologists active in diabetes research and practising clinicians, Psychology in Diabetes Care, Second Edition provides a practical evidence-based approach to intervention in diabetes care.

This is an indispensable guide to diabetes care and practice, providing a thorough overview of the main issues that health professionals should keep in mind when treating someone with the condition, and how psychology plays a key role in diabetes self-management. Based on the latest research evidence along with numerous patient perspectives, the book looks at a wide range of topics in diabetes health psychology, from mental health conditions to theories of behaviour change, with a focus on comorbidities. Chapters describe the emotional impact of a diabetes diagnosis; the psychosocial issues surrounding living with diabetes; theories of behaviour applied to diabetes self-management; the impact of diabetes and depression; diabetes and eating disorders; the psychological impact of diabetes complications, and potential stigma associated with having Type 2 diabetes, including the psychological impact of weight loss surgery. Psychology in Diabetes Care and Practice enables the provision of support to reduce psychological distress and improve diabetes self-management. It helps patients to learn more about how best to manage their condition, as well as health professionals wanting to find appropriate ways to facilitate self-management.

This handbook is designed to provide authoritative information to the psychologist working in primary-care settings and to those seeking to learn about clinical issues in such settings. Scholarly and at the same time practical, this volume offers both the clinician and the researcher a wide-ranging look at the contexts in which psychological services become of paramount importance to the health of the patient. The handbook will cover the prevalent psychological conditions in the primary-care setting--depression, anxiety, somatization, eating disorders, and alcoholism; illnesses in which psychological disorders play a major role, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, pain management, headache, asthma, low back pain, sleep disorders, among others; and issues of concern to psychologists treating children (ADHD, disciplinary problems, etc.), treating women (abuse, infertility, menopause, sexual dysfunction), treating men (workaholism, alcoholism, sexual dysfunction), and treating the older patient (death and dying, cognitive impairment, late life depression). Other important topics include psychological side effects of common medications, resistance to treatment, spiritual concerns in the treatment of patients, cultural differences in healing, suicide, AIDS, prevention of disease, and many others. Leonard Haas is a noted authority in the area of primary-care psychology and has recruited expert contributors for the 41 chapters and two appendices that make up this definitive handbook for a growing and important subspecialty in clinical psychology. The work may also be used in graduate courses in health psychology.
