Many books about behavioral medicine techniques and applications published in the past are now outdated, and do not reflect the diversity and excitement of the field in the new millennium. This Handbook aims to fill this gap by providing an up-to-date survey of methods and applications across the broad range of behavioral medicine research and practice. The chapters will be written by fellows of the Academy of Behavioral Medicine Research, a distinguished scientific society of active behavioral medicine researchers. This book will reflect an innovative structure based on cutting-edge methodolo.
