Sharing expertise

Psychology of health, wellbeing and lifespan development.

This focus covers issues of health in infants and new mothers, including feeding behaviour, health concerns in young people, communication in health care contexts, aggression in health and social care and the experience of illness and disability.

This focus also includes established interests in child and adult cognitive and personality development, but also embraces newly emerging concerns with mental health and well-being, as reflected in a new MSc course in Psychological Wellbeing and a British Psychological Society accredited MSc in Health Psychology.
