CFS: Behavioral Medicine

Does stress affect the course of chronic disease? Are friendships and community activities vital to recovery after surgery? Are blood pressure measurements affected by where or how the test is taken? For over a quarter century, Behavioral Medicine has answered such questions by publishing well-written and researched articles about the mind-body relationship. Formerly known as the Journal of Human Stress, Behavioral Medicine is a quarterly, multidisciplinary journal that physicians, nurses, psychologists, and counselors will not want to miss. Three-part, state-of-the-art syntheses devoted to a single topic (disability in older adults, smoking, interpersonal violence) are published on occasion. Each of these triptychs includes a careful review of the literature, practical suggestions to guide clinicians translating scientific knowledge into action, and a thoughtful discussion of desired changes in public policy, education, and insurance coverage.
