With the shifting emphasis in governance and health-related policy papers, health psychology continues to grow in popularity.
Communities are dynamic and always changing, so our understanding and support of health, wellbeing and behavioural changes needs to be considerate of all diverse groups. On this course, you'll study a range of techniques and methods, ensuring you graduate with the skills you need to be a competent, knowledgeable health psychology practitioner.
What's covered in the course?
We'll provide you with a detailed understanding of the key theoretical and applied issues in health psychology. These include the key psychological theories and applications which support behaviour change, addressing disease prevention and enhancing health and wellbeing, managing health, health promotion and health interventions and self-reflection on your own learning and development.
Contemporary health issues will be put into context at local, national and international levels, exposing you to issues which cover the globe as well as local areas.
You’ll be taught how to submit a research ethics proposal, which will address a health issue with the use of psychology. You'll also learn how to complete a mini systematic review, which will provide a rationale for your health psychology project, how to evaluate and conduct analysis, and you'll also enhance your skills in communication, presentation and group work.
