Division of Health Psychology

The goal of health psychology is to study the psychological processes underlying health, illness and health care, and to apply these findings to the promotion and maintenance of health, the analysis and improvement of the health care system and health policy formation, the prevention of illness and disability, and the enhancement of outcomes for those who are ill or disabled.

Resources

The Society provides a number of Standards and Guidelines to assist and inform its members in regards to most aspects of their professional practice.

Society members also have access to a wealth of resources, including the British Journal of Health Psychology. This and other journals can be viewed for free via PsychSource.
