In clinical psychology, you’ll study behavioural problems in children, mental illness in adults, and psychological problems in old age. This will include important contemporary issues such as eating disorders, body dysmorphia and drug misuse. You’ll analyse, not only what causes these problems but also how they can be treated, or, even better, prevented. In health psychology, you’ll examine the psychological factors that lead some individuals to behave in health-damaging ways, such as eating unhealthy diets, not taking enough exercise, or engaging in unsafe sexual behaviour. You’ll study what happens when individuals do become ill or disabled, with diseases such as heart disease and cancer, and how stress can impact general health. As well as understanding how things can go wrong, you’ll analyse how the situation can be improved through psychological interventions such as counselling and mindfulness, as well as the positive benefits of the science of wellbeing.Psychology at Bangor University was founded in 1963 and is one of the UK's oldest and largest psychology departments.
