Course Summary

The content of this course will introduce students to the knowledge and skills relevant to working with other professionals and a range of client groups across the lifespan. This will include the appropriate use of communication and interviewing skills such as development of rapport and trust, questioning, reinforcement, reflection of content and feeling, and non-verbal communication. Students will be encouraged to compare and contrast a range of interventions applicable to health psychology settings and health and well-being outcomes (e.g. cognitive- behavioural approaches, motivational interviewing). Students will develop an understanding of the issues relevant to the design and evaluation of a range of interventions including knowledge of: health needs assessment, the process of formulation, based on assessment, which informs choice of intervention, and behaviour change techniques. This module will also cover the legal and statutory obligations and restrictions on health psychology practice in the UK and will recognise the need to take responsibility for their own professional development (e.g. through PDP), and should therefore understand the principles and utility of critical self-reflection for their development as trainee health psychologists.
