Fascinating book. Through different lenses, a diverse range of authors explain the link between social identity and both mental and physical health. Mechanisms and implications are discussed for all kinds of patient groups, minority groups and health care settings. A must-read for every social psychologist and particularly for every health care worker and/or academic in the clinical field.
