La moderna psicologia scientifica si e sin dagli inizi occupata di problematiche riguardanti il legame tra salute/malattia del corpo e salute/malattia della mente.

La psicologia clinica viene descritta come:“un settore della psicologia i cui obbiettivi sono la spiegazione, la comprensione, l’interpretazione e la riorganizzazione dei processi mentali disfunzionali o patologici, individuali e interpersonali, unitamente ai loro correlati comportamentali e psicobiologici” [2].

Observational studies indicate that psychologic factors strongly influence the course of coronary artery disease (CAD). In this review, we examine new epidemiologic evidence for the association between psychosocial risk factors and CAD, identify pathologic mechanisms that may be responsible for this association, and describe a paradigm for studying positive psychologic factors that may act as a buffer. Because psychosocial risk factors are highly prevalent and are associated with unhealthy lifes...

This article examines health promotion and disease prevention from the perspective of social cognitive theory. This theory posits a multifaceted causal structure in which self-efficacy beliefs operate together with goals, outcome expectations, and perceived environmental impediments and facilitators in the regulation of human motivation, behavior, and well-being. Belief in one’s efficacy to exercise control is a common pathway through which psychosocial influences affect health functioning. This...
