PSYCH 351 Health Psychology

3 Credits

Did you know that in the United States most deaths occur because of the choices people make? Leading causes of mortality stem from substance abuse, overeating, unprotected sex, homicide, and suicide. Many people also neglect to exercise, wear seatbelts, or take medications as recommended. This course will focus on understanding the internal, social, and environmental causes of these unhealthy behaviors. We will also critically examine different means of prevention and treatment at the individual and public levels. Health psychology is a broad and upcoming field important for those interested in public health, medicine, and psychology.
