INTRODUCTION

This level 1 module is aimed at introducing students to the dynamic associations between psychological principles of human development, behaviour and health. The module will consider these inter-relationships broadly but also focus upon applied concepts and influences on the individual's perceptions of health and social care need. Such perceptions are often rooted within our learning experiences which influence the development of attitudes and beliefs and impact directly upon human interaction, and behaviour. These influences affect all human beings and consequently the module provides as much a focus to the student's understanding of themselves as it does the understanding of the patient/service-user.

Coping with challenging life events is fundamental to individual susceptibility and responses to health change. The module will explore such concepts by considering psychological coping mechanisms and responses to stress, loss and bereavement. Such issues are commonplace within professional caring contexts and through the module's exploration it is anticipated that student's will be facilitated to gain greater insight into providing appropriate, sensitive and effective nursing and social care support. Such effective support is built upon many skills, fundamental to which is communication and this module will continue to build upon the theoretical perspectives addressed in previous programme studies
