About this Unit
In this unit students acquire an understanding of how biological, psychological, and social factors interact in health and illness, and how the principles and intervention strategies of clinical psychology can be applied to the management of physical disorders. The practice of this branch of clinical psychology requires an understanding of the biological, psychological, and social characteristics of people with chronic and acute illness, their symptoms, the medical interventions they encounter, and the appropriate psychological interventions to help manage their conditions and enhance quality of life.
