Health Psychology

Showcasing Health Psychology Postgraduate Research: Contemporary Methods and Theory

Health psychology is a field which brings together a wide range of approaches, methodologies and theories. The field has previously been dominated by theory-driven quantitative research, but important contributions have been made to the field by research using qualitative or mixed methods.

The aim of this symposium is to showcase the breadth of current postgraduate research within the area of Health Psychology, by bringing together speakers with a wide range of research interests and using a wide range of methods. This symposium aims to increase the understanding of the range of contemporary health-related research conducted by postgraduates and the potential impacts of these findings on policy, healthcare and behaviour prevention.

We welcome abstract submissions from postgraduates at all levels (MSc, PhD or Trainee) who are studying the psychological processes of health, illness and health care. This could include those taking accredited courses, as well as those researching any area of health psychology.

Please note that this symposium is split in to two sessions.
