Über diese Zeitschrift

The Journal of Behavioral Medicine is a broadly conceived interdisciplinary publication devoted to furthering understanding of physical health and illness through the knowledge and techniques of behavioral science. A significant function of the journal is the application of this knowledge to prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation. The contents span all areas of behavioral medicine research: psychology, psychiatry, sociology, epidemiology, anthropology, health economics, public health, general medicine, and biostatistics.

Coverage includes effects of psychological stress on physical functioning; sociocultural influences on health and illness; adherence to medical regimens and health maintenance behavior (e.g. exercise, nutrition); the study of appetitive disorders (alcoholism, smoking and obesity) that pose physical risk; behavioral factors in the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS; pain, self-regulation therapies and biofeedback for somatic disorders; and brain-behavioral relationships that influence physiological function.
