Course Content

Psychology for Health and Social care looks at psychological and social factors
associated with physical illness, the impact of illness on individuals, psychological
intervention, and how this knowledge can be used in healthcare and social care practice.

The course is divided into three sections: Section 1 introduces psychological theories and evidence relevant to health and social care. Section 2 looks at the psychological impact of illness and psychological intervention. Section 3 uses case studies, such as child birth and cardiovascular disease, to explore how psychological theory and intervention can be used in practice.
