Health and illness are connected to a whole range of factors that impact on our physical well-being, some of which are hereditary and many behavioural and psychological. Health psychology is a specialty area that will explore how biology, social factors and behaviour influence health and illness. This module will investigate theoretical approaches to health, and key themes of illness, coping and lifestyle. A range of historical and contemporary empirical and theoretical perspectives will be discussed as we seek to define ‘health’.
