Health Psychology: Current Theory, Research, and Interventions

Description:
Health psychology studies the intersection of psychological theory and intervention in health, illness, and healthcare. Traditionally it has been based on a biopsychosocial approach: a person's health is determined by an interaction among biological (e.g., genetics), psychological (e.g., thoughts and behaviors) and social factors (e.g., culture, family, and social support). Health psychologists are involved in the promotion and maintenance of health, the prevention and management of illness, and the identification of psychological factors contribution to physical illness. This course adds current transdisciplinary developments addressing the question of health disparities and social determinants of health.
