Birinci Öğretim


You will examine the contributions of psychological research to the understanding, prevention, and treatment of a variety of health concerns. We will emphasize a biopsychosocial model, which means we will study how social, emotional, behavioral, and biological factors influence health and illness. The specific topics include health behaviors such as eating, smoking and drinking, health-compromising factors such as stress, pain and their management, as well as patient-physician relations, and chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
