Psicologia della salute (Health Psychology) is the official journal of the Italian Society of Health Psychology. Health psychology concerns the research, application, and testing of psychological interventions. Its aims are to: a) promote and preserve people’s health; b) prevent and treat disease; c) analyse and improve health protection systems and the formulation of health policies. The journal seeks to contribute to scientific advancement in the field through the dissemination of knowledge and experience, and by promoting exchange between scholars and practitioners working in the health sector.
