Health Psychology and Behavioural Medicine
The Health Psychology and Behavioural Medicine Group aims to examine the psychological factors that are associated with health-related behaviour and develop interventions that will promote health in the general population and populations with clinical or chronic conditions.
- Conduct pioneering experimental and applied theory-based research on health-related behaviour.
- Lead and collaborate on national and international research projects using psychological techniques to promote and change health behaviour.
- Disseminate research findings broadly to academic and practitioner groups.
- Engage practitioners and stakeholders to translate research evidence into effective behavioural interventions and health promotion practice.
- Mentor students and early-career researchers on programs of research in health psychology and behavioural medicine.
- Contribute to intellectual debate on priority issues in applied health psychology and behavioural medicine.
