PSY 300 Health Psychology

3 Credit(s) PGR
This course in Health Psychology will examine the application of psychological principles and research in promoting and maintaining health and well-being and in preventing and treating illness. Working within bio-psychosocial and ecological frameworks, this course will explore how dynamic interactions between biological, psychological, social, environmental, economic, health systems, and health policy factors influence health and illness. Students will gain an understanding of how their own behaviors (e.g., diet, exercise, drug use, sexual behavior, exposure to environmental toxins) may affect their personal health outcomes, and impact their communities. Three lecture hours per week.
