MATOS, Margarida Gaspar de. Psicologia da Saúde, saúde pública e saúde internacional. Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2004, vol.22, n.3, pp.449-462. ISSN 0870-8231.

The relevance of Health Psychology in the health field is increasing, including areas such as daily relationship of people with health and disease, communication and cooperation with other health professionals and research and innovation in the Health System. This fact has to do with an historical evolution of knowledge and research in this area whose consequence was an "historical" convergence among Health Psychology, Public Health and the more recent International Health, and had important benefits for those three areas. Another consequence had to do with academic training. Most of Superior Psychology Schools include now a specific training in Health Psychology, with contents in Public Health and International Health, and in the same way, most Public Health Schools and International Health Schools include now contents in Health Psychology. This work will review these historical changes and their consequences on this new understanding about health/well- being promotion in individuals and in the community.
