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.

Our aims

  • 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.
