Nutrition Psychology: Improving Dietary Adherence presents prominent psychological theories that are known to drive human eating behavior, and reveal how these models can be transformed into proactive strategies for adhering to healthy dietary regimens. The number of diet books in the trade market continues to rise daily, but what is interesting to note is obesity and the prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes continues to rise as well. From this evidence, we can deduce that these dietary approaches are not fully effective. One could say that there is a missing link between eating a healthy prescribed diet and maintaining that final goal. The missing link, which has been overlooked until now, is managing one’s compliance to their diet or health plan. This text will provide students with the psychological tools regarding how to maintain the intended dietary plan. Understanding the extent to which the brain, the situation/environment and biology play in our adherence to a healthy dietary regimen, long-term success adhering to a dietary regimen can be achieved. This text brings a cross-disciplinary perspective/solution for adhering to a healthy dietary program, valuable to a variety of healthcare students and practitioners. The text incorporates both a theoretical and applied approach. Case study examples further illustrate the correct application of psychological methods. These examples will help develop the student or practitioner's own self-diagnosing skills of appropriate eating strategies as well as understanding others'.

 


Learning Objectives


Become familiar with four general factors/persectives that are known to drive human behavior. Develop an expertise in identifying when one (and which one) of these factors is responsible for one's non-compliance to a diet/nutrition plan. Gain actual practice in applying the appropriate psychological strategy to increase health plan adherence. Increase knowledge of research on the best practices in diet adherence. Increase understanding of the complexity of eating behavior/adherence and the need for forethought. Integration of theory, research and practice/application, with regard to health plan adherence. Decision-making and problem-solving skills in making a diagnosis and understanding which adherence strategy should be implemented.

A Journey into Partial Differential Equations

William O Bray, PhD, University of Maine


ISBN: 9780763772567


Hardcover   400 Pages   © 2012


 


Ideal for the 1-term course, A Journey into Partial Differential Equations provides a solid introduction to PDEs for the undergraduate math, engineering, or physics student.  The text focuses on the classical trinity of equations including the wave, heat/diffusion, and LaPlace's equations, discussing the concepts and methodologies of each. It provides careful treatment of the separation of variables and the Fourier method, motivated by the geometrical notion of symmetries. The author places emphasis on both the qualitative and quantitative methods, as well as geometrical perspectives.  With hundred of exercises and a wealth of figures, A Journey into Partial Differential Equations proves to be the model book for the PDE course.
