Contents

In 1986, when a BPS Special Group in Health Psychology was inaugurated, few people knew that health psychologists existed, let alone what they did. Twenty-five years later, the British Psychological Society's Division of Health Psychology (DHP) has over 1600 members, working as practitioners and academics in a range of settings. Their work includes helping people to live more healthily and to manage illness, often alongside other healthcare professionals. Increasingly, health psychologists in research are called upon to provide the evidence base for public health initiatives. As part of the DHP's silver jubilee celebrations, we present a series of short articles from some of the leading lights of the field, showcasing significant contributions. We also meet health psychologists in 'Careers' and 'One on one'.

As we sign off at the end of another year of The Psychologist and approach our own silver jubilee volume, may I thank all those who have contributed their time and expertise. Do get in touch if you would like to feature in 2012, on [email protected].
