Health Psychology

Health psychology draws upon clinical assessment and cutting-edge research to examine how biology, behavior, and social context influence health and illness. Within this biopsychosocial framework, Division 38 (Health Psychology) of the American Psychological Association notes that:


'Health psychologists participate in health care in a multitude of settings including primary care programs, inpatient medical units, and specialized health care programs such as pain management, rehabilitation, women's health, oncology, smoking cessation, headache management, and various other programs.'


Applied areas of interest include:


  • Health Promotion & Maintenance
  • Cognitive & Behavioral Assessment
  • Stress Management
  • Biofeedback
  • Chronic Pain
  • Sleep Disorders

Health Psychology Career Advice & Information



Clinical Health Psychology is a recognized specialty within professional psychology, the practice of which requires a specific knowledge base attained through coordinated education and training. As such, anybody interested in pursuing a career as a health psychologist should make their national psychology association or representative body a first port of call for information, advice and guidance.


With this in mind, I've provided information links for anybody interested in becoming a health psychologist, or anybody wanting to find out more about what health psychologists do. This information will relate predominately to the practice of health psychology in the USA & UK however, I hope to include related information from other countries in due course.
