Psychological Treatment of Cardiac Patients

Matthew M. Burg

American Psychological Association


187 pages


Clinical health Psychology Series


Burg presents an introduction to and primer for the clinical practice of cardiovascular behavioral medicine and behavioral cardiology for advanced students and mental health professionals who are new to this specialty. He uses clinical examples throughout to illustrate the disease presentation, subsequent treatments, and the psychosocial issues that both contribute to heart disease and are sequelae to cardiac events. More advanced training is necessary before someone can actually practice in the cardiologic context, he warns. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
