Cursusdoelen
The overall aim of this course is to further develop yourself as a professional academic psychologist in healthcare. To achieve this, you will have knowledge of common models of (mental) health and illness, coping and adaptation. You can distinguish the professional activities of the health care psychologist in promoting, preventing, changing, supporting adaptation, and alleviating. In addition, you can distinguish the different roles that individuals can play in their own health. You will learn about the theory of evidence-based practice and how that theory can be put into practice in the day-to-day work of caring for individuals in (mental) healthcare. More concretely this means that:
 
  1. You can describe common definitions of (mental) health and relate them to theories about coping, adaptation and self-management.
    1. You recognise adaptation processes in chronic disorders and can link activities of individuals and interventions to these processes.
    2. You can describe the roles and tasks of people with health issues as forms of ownership and can link (lack of) ownership to tasks of psychologists in health care.
  1. You can distinguish the professional activities of the health care psychologist 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.
    1. You can prepare and lead a discussion with fellow students on health-promoting behaviors and interventions as well as risk factors for (mental) health problems and how these can be influenced (prevention). 
    2. You can prepare and lead a discussion with fellow students on psychological treatment as well as supporting adaptation to chronic illness.
    3. You can discuss problems related to aging and terminal diseases and how psychologists can contribute to end-of-life care.
  1. You can explain the foundations of evidence-based practice and apply them to answer a clinical question.
    1. You can assess, in an interview, how a person copes with his or her chronic (mental) illness and link this to relevant scientific literature.
    2. You can 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).
    3. You can develop interventions to address common problems in this chronic (mental) illness based on commonly used theoretical models and evidence-based techniques in psychology.
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 will start with a series of lectures that provide necessary background knowledge (block 1; weeks 1-3). Second, you will work in small teams to better understand the functions of psychologists in (mental) healthcare: promoting, preventing, curing, caring and alleviating (block 2; weeks 4-5). Finally, you will follow lectures on the application of evidence-based practice (block 3; weeks 6-7). You will apply your knowledge in an assignment that you will write together with a fellow student: you will  interview a person with a chronic (mental) illness and discuss disease-related challenges and interventions in this particular illness, using evidence-based practice techniques. 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, (work)group 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 practice to find and describe an evidence-based intervention for the person you have interviewed and their treatment goals.
