Did you know?
Psychology is one of the disciplines directed to the study of human behavior. Its study is relevant due to the complexity of contemporary reality, in which it is more frequent to face situations where there are interconnections between biological, psychological, and social matters.
Currently, both in the international and national contexts, people suffer strong deterioration in the quality of life in general and in their psychological state in particular, as a consequence of various factors, such as job demands, social insecurity, work instability, family dysfunction, personal frustration, chronic degenerative diseases, exposure to risk situations, migration and other incident factors.
The development and advances in the field of general psychology and of clinical and health psychology, in particular, have paved the way for new proposals for the application of knowledge to promote health and prevent disease.
In clinical and health psychology, research processes and psychological methods are applied for the promotion and maintenance of health, for the prevention and management of disease, as well as for the identification of psychological factors that contribute to physical diseases, and for improvement in the health system and even the formulation of health policies.
The Tecnológico de Monterrey capitalizes on the experience of these areas of knowledge to offer the Bachelor's program in Clinical and Health Psychology (BHP) to train the competent professional to meet current biopsychosocial needs from a perspective that seeks the integral well-being of the person and the community.
