The Journal of Psychology: Interdisciplinary and Applied Call for Papers: Special Issue

The Psychology of Health and Illness

The Journal of Psychology

The Journal of Psychology: Interdisciplinary and Applied is launching a call for papers for a Special Issue on “The Psychology of Health and Illness.

Because The Journal of Psychology usually publishes articles on various psychological maladjustments and on issues affecting mental health in positive and aversive manners, we would now like to explore the influence of emotions, cognitions, and lifestyle on the causes, identification, and treatment of bodily illnesses, and on maintaining health and vitality.

The areas that could contribute and have dealt with the topic include, but are not limited to, psychology, medicine, sociology, history, healthcare (both traditional and complimentary), and philosophy.
