Health psychology approach

Definition of ‘health psychology’

study of the psychological processes of health, illness and health care

‘Health psychology’ is applied to

  • promotion and maintenance of health
  • analysis and improvement of the health care system and health policy formation
  • prevention of illness and disability
  • enhancement of outcomes of those who are ill/disabled

Diet is more complex many than other “health behaviours” because eating, unlike other health related behaviours, is not really optional.
