Behavior Change, Clinical Interventions and Health Promotion|
This class will review the current science and historical context of mental and physical health behavior change approaches across three levels of intervention: the self, the individual, and society. Major topics will include fundamental behavioral principles, basic elements of empirically supported individual treatments (e.g., cognitive behavioral therapies, interpersonal therapy), and the design and evaluation of population-level health interventions. Lectures, readings, and clinical examples will illustrate both the theory and step-by-step practice of evidence-based approaches to behavior change across levels. Assignments may include a self-monitoring exercise, in-class role plays, a group project, an exam, and brief writing assignments. This course is designed to introduce students to a broad range of contemporary approaches to psychological and behavioral treatments; however, it will not provide the skills needed to implement psychological interventions.
