Cursusdoelen
After completion of the course you can distinguish the professional activities of the health care psychologist in promoting, preventing, changing, supporting adaptation, and alleviating, taking into account the different stages of life. In addition, you can distinguish the different roles that individuals can play in their own health. More concretely this means that:
  1. You can distinguish common definitions of (mental) health and apply them within healthcare.
  2. You can relate the definitions of (mental) health to theories about coping, adaptation and self-management.
  3. You can describe and evaluate health-promoting behaviors and interventions.
  4. You can name risk factors for (mental) health problems and you understand how these can be influenced. 
  5. You have knowledge and understanding of the basic principles of psychotherapy.
  6. You have insight in adaptation processes in chronic disorders and can link activities of individuals and interventions to these processes.
  7. You have insight into problems related to aging and terminal diseases and how psychologists can contribute to end-of-life care.
  8. You are able to assess, in an interview, how a person copes with his or her chronic (mental) illness and link this to relevant scientific literature.
  9. You are able to link the individual’s coping process to the literature and topics discussed in the lectures (i.e., definitions of health, promoting, preventing, changing, supporting adaptation, and alleviating).
  10. You are able to develop interventions to address common problems in this chronic (mental) illness based on commonly used theoretical models and evidence-based techniques in psychology.
  11. You can prepare and lead a discussion with fellow students on prevention of and coping with chronic (mental) illness, including health promotion, (mental) disease prevention, treatment of (mental) illness, adaptation to chronic illness, and acceptance.
Inhoud
In this course you will gain in-depth knowledge about the interaction between mental and physical processes. Topics are related to health promotion, (mental) disease prevention, treatment of (mental) illness, adaptation to chronic illness, and acceptance. In this course you will learn to identify potential psychological interventions in health and illness. The course contents are illustrated by current research and guest lecturers will come to speak about the practical application of the abovementioned topics in their workfield.

In addition to a series of lectures that provide necessary background knowledge, there will be 5 mandatory workgroup meetings. During the workgroup meetings, you will prepare to interview a person with a chronic (mental) illness and discuss disease-related challenges and interventions in this particular illness. There are also self-study assignments and we use peer learning to enhance the acquisition of knowledge and skill though active learning and support among fellow students. The course lectures, literature, workgroup meetings, self-study assignments and peer-feedback will help you prepare for the final assignment, in which you will apply the principles of evidence-based medicine to find and describe an evidence-based intervention for the person you have interviewed and their treatment goals.
