This survey course will examine the contributions of psychological research to the understanding, prevention, and treatment of a variety of health concerns. This course will employ a biopsychosocial model, which means that we will study how social, emotional, behavioral, biological, and spiritual factors influence health. The specific topics include injury, stress, pain management, additions, sleep, patient-physician relations, and chronic illnesses such as Alzheimer's, diabetes, and AIDS. Prerequisite: PSYC 111
