Main topics of research in health psychology. A critical analysis of the 23rd European Congress of Health Psychology - The aim of this paper is to highlight the main research areas in health psychology in Europe through the critical analysis of presentations and posters at the last European Congress of Health Psychology, which was held in Pisa. Through the analysis of the congress programme and the abstract book we identified nine main areas: theories of behavioural change; health promotion interventions; illness perception and representations; coping strategies and self-regulation in the management of illness; the contribution of positive psychology to developments in health psychology; health in different stages of life; the psychophysiology of health and well-being; the health and well-being of workers and work organizations; research methods in health psychology. In every area considered, beyond classic contents, new developments and novel approaches were identified.
Keywords: Health Psychology, European congress, behavioural change, illness adjustment, well-being
