Zusammenfassung

Dieses Kapitel beschäftigt sich mit dem Beitrag, den die klinische Gesundheitspsychologie zum Verständnis und zur Bewältigung von koronaren Herzerkrankungen und Bluthochdruck (Hypertonie) leistet. Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen sind in den westlichen Nationen die Haupttodesursache. Statistiken der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (1987) zeigen, daβ 1986 53% aller weiblichen und 46% aller männlichen Todesfälle in der Bundesrepublik auf Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen zurückzuführen waren; die entsprechenden Daten in England und Wales betrugen 49% bei Frauen und 48% bei Männern. Zum Vergleich: An Krebs starben in der Bundesrepublik im selben Zeitraum lediglich 24% aller Männer und 22% der Frauen.
