Health Psychology

Health Psychology is a healthcare approach that focuses on psychological, behavioral, and cultural factors that play a role in physical health and illnesses. In order to prevent and treat disease, health psychologists take a biopsychosocial approach in order to understand a person’s health not just as a biological process, but also by harnessing psychological factors in order to improve the overall health of the individual. Health psychologists work hand-in-hand with primary healthcare physicians to treat the person as a whole, no matter their sickness or disease. To help you and your family understand and maintain a high level of wellness, look to ExpertBeacon’s qualified health professionals for help.

Julia Samton, MD Director of Manhattan Neuropsychiatric and Board Certified in Psychiatry & Neurology Manhattan Neuropsychiatric

Behavioral psychologists believe that it is possible to shape behavior by reinforcing positive changes and discouraging negative behaviors. Early studies of behavioral psychology used animal models to prove the efficacy of this approach. For example, scientists learned they could teach a mouse to stay in a particular area of its cage by rewarding it with food and water when it roamed the desired area. The success of this approaches prompted behavioral psychologists to examine similar method in humans.

Improve health and wellbeing with the biopsychosocial approach

Lubna Somjee, Ph.D. Clinical and Health Psychologist/Executive Coach and Business Strategy Consultant

We used to think treating the body was the solution to treating medical conditions. This is actually an antiquated notion. Research has shown, for many years, that medical health and illness are due to the interplay of three factors: biological, psychological and social. This is called the biopsychosocial approach to health. The biological component of health care is obviously important, however, when you address it exclusively you are unable to treat patients effectively because you are ignoring other factors that impact their disease.
