Happy new MPH students gather in class

PHHBP 718 Health Psychology

This course introduces MPH students to the principles and practices of Health Psychology. The first half of the class is focused on learning theories of behavior change, discussing the case formulation process in single unrelated cases, and an introduction to the fundamental aspects of health psychology treatments. The second half of the class will center on related and increasingly complicated cases and students will be urged to see connections between symptom classes and complementary treatment models and techniques. By the end of this class students will be able to have a health psychology patient case presented and be able to describe the case in terms of a theory of health behavior or psychological intervention model and to describe how to intervene with an appropriate psychological treatment. (Elective for BIOS, EPID, and HBHP)
