Health Beliefs and Coping with Chronic Diseases

Ajit K Dalal (Author)

The volume examines how a patient’s cultural beliefs, attitude and faith are crucial in his or her recovery from chronic diseases. On the basis of empirical studies, it views the role of social, psychological and spiritual factors in restoring health. It takes up the situation in India where belief is in the Hindu karma theory and other spiritual and religious beliefs and how these impact on the way the people seek remedies. It deals with the health beliefs, beliefs about the world, perception of hospital environment and family support for chronic patients. Exploring the link between psychology and health, it delves into the meaning and practices of folk healing in India, the services they provide, the scientific rationale of the indigenous medicinal language and what makes them efficacious, and how the practices can be integrated with existing health care programmes.
