Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Psychology, Applied

Psychology, applied in healthcare, refers to the use of psychological principles and techniques to understand, prevent, and treat mental and physical health problems.

Clinical psychology is one of the most common applications of psychology in healthcare. Clinical psychologists work with individuals, families, and groups to assess, diagnose, and treat mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. They also provide therapy and counseling to help individuals cope with stress and improve their overall well-being.

Health psychology is another important application of psychology in healthcare. Health psychologists study the psychological and social factors that influence health and illness, and develop interventions to promote healthy behaviors and prevent disease. They may work in hospitals, clinics, or research settings to design and implement programs that address issues such as smoking, obesity, and stress management.

Psychologists also work in rehabilitation settings helping people with chronic illnesses or disabilities to cope with the physical, emotional, and social aspects of their condition and to improve their quality of life.

Additionally, psychology can be applied in healthcare settings such as hospitals, nursing homes, and community health centers to improve patient care and healthcare outcomes, support staff, and increase patient satisfaction.
