授業の概要・目的 The mind-body connection is an important concept for understanding both health and illness. In medicine, behavior and emotion make up major risk and protective factors for many physical illnesses. Importantly, chronic illnesses and lifestyle diseases can be better understood with psychological and behavioral medicine. This is because if one thinks and behaves in a healthy way, they start to feel healthier. This understanding is the foundation of medical psychology. In this course students will gain a broad overview of medical psychology. They will gain knowledge in the history of psychology evolving from early medical disciplines. They will also be introduced to the foundational theories behind medical psychology. Additionally, students will learn about the primary roles of clinical psychology in evidence-based medicine.
