Psychiatric disorders and certain personality features are frequently associated with cardiovascular disorders. For the past several decades attention to the psychosocial and behavioural factors in cardiovascular disease has increased significantly. Understanding the integration of the interactions among multiple psychological and biological factors in the regulation of the cardiovascular system and the development of cardiovascular disorders is an important challenge for future research. This book will contribute to this goal. The contributors to this book are the leading international experts in the field of the relation between psychological processes and cardiovascular disorders. This important book will be of interest to physicians, psychologists, mental health counsellors, other clinicians, medical and psychology students, and medical residents.
