PS310 Health Psychology
Prerequisite: PS 101.
Through an interdisciplinary approach, students will examine how
multiple factors interact with and affect health, recovery, and
adjustment of patients with serious health problems (e.g. cancer and
heart disease); the efforts people make in promoting good health and
preventing illness (weight control, smoking cessation, etc.); and the
treatments received and the strategies used to cope with medical
problems and their stress/pain.
