PSYC 5242 - Changing Health Behavior: Theory and Practice♦


(5 cr.)
Students in this course review past and current models of health behavior change, disease prevention, disease management, and relapse prevention. They cover health-related issues, including dietary needs, tobacco and drug use, safer sexual practices, and stress management. In addition, students examine the analysis of behavior change within specific populations (young, elderly, cognitively impaired, etc.) and factors that predict or serve as obstacles to lifestyle change and adherence.
