MSc Applied Clinical Health Psychology

Course Description

Clinical Health Psychology is a branch of Health Psychology that focuses on the relationship between psychological variables and biomedical conditions. It deals with the processes of the psychological treatment of, and response to physical illness of patients in the health care system. In particular, students develop counselling skills to apply to working with clients in the health care system. As such the programme takes a scientist-practitioner approach and thus students develop both skills in research methodology and a range of professional and practical skills. This MSc does not qualify you to practice as a Health Psychologist, Clinical Psychologist, or a counsellor or therapist. However, it will provide you with knowledge and skills relevant to understanding how psychology is applied to the care of the physically ill and how it is applied to maximise the effectiveness of health care delivery.

During the course you will study counselling skills; chronic illness and its management; working with patients in the health care system; health-related behaviour, addiction and treatment; public health, health promotion and behaviour change interventions; stress and stress management; and research methods. You will have access to some of the best and most up-to-date psychology specialist postgraduate computer, laboratory and library study facilities for teaching and research in the UK.

This course is intended for those with or without a degree in psychology but without the Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS) (normally obtained through completing a psychology degree in the UK). Those with GBC may prefer to apply for our BPS accredited MSc Health Psychology, which includes a placement.
