Mental Representation in Health & Illnessby J.a. Ed. Skeleton
Synopses & Reviews
How do individuals conceive illness and symptoms? Do their conceptions conflict with the physician's views of their illness, and what happens if they do? This book thoroughly explores the field of disease representation, describes and discusses lay illness models in a variety of social, histo- rical and cultural contexts.
Book News Annotation:
Explores how ordinary people conceive of illness, both when they are sick and when they are well, from perspectives of medicine, psychology, and social sciences. The aim of the studies is to understand why people engage in such behavior as following, or not following, the doctor's orders.
