Course Overview

Health psychology focuses on the roles of psychology, biology and social or environmental factors on health and health-related behaviour. Health psychologists promote healthier lifestyles and seek to improve well-being by understanding the impact that health-related thoughts, feelings and behaviour can have on the individual. Health strategy has been shifting from the treatment of disease to the maintenance of health and prevention of illness. This is particularly important in the Welsh context given that self-reported 'good health' is lower in Wales compared to other areas of the UK (ONS 2011), with a high level of risky behaviours (Welsh Assembly Government, 2004).
