Behavioral medicine Discussion

As you have observed throughout this course, beginning with your Unit 1 assignment, Psychology’s goals are a natural outgrowth of our desire to understand behavior. Basically, they boil down to asking the following questions:

What is the nature of this behavior? (description)

Why does it occur? (understanding and explanation)

Can we forecast when it will occur? (prediction)

What conditions affect it? (control)

Today many psychologists are eclectic practitioners because they realize a single psychological perspective is unlikely to fully explain the complex nature of human behavior. As a result, there are a variety of perspectives, with insights from one often complementing insights from another. First addressed in Unit 1 and referenced throughout this course, your text refers to the following contemporary ways to look at behavior:

Biological Perspective.

Biopsycological View.

Evolutionary View.

Psychological Perspective.

Behavioristic View.

Cognitive View.

Psychodynamic View.

Humanistic View.

Sociocultural Perspective.

Sociocultural View.

For your final assignment, you will demonstrate your understanding of both the goals of psychology and the contemporary views of behavior as they pertain to the areas of health psychology and behavioral medicine.

You are free to choose any topic of interest from Chapter 13 of the textbook. Examples of topics for this paper include:

The impact of behavior on health.

The effects of stress on health.

The importance of social support on health.

The effects of burnout.

Type A and Type B personality types.

Conflict management.

Effective coping strategies.

You will complete a 3–5 page review paper on your chosen topic in the field of health psychology and behavioral medicine. Within this paper you will also illustrate an application of both the goals of psychology and the contemporary psychological perspectives. In addition to utilizing your course materials, you will be required to incorporate information from a minimum of three recent (a publication date within the last 10 years) scholarly articles in your paper.
