Learners will examine the principal psychological perspectives and then apply them to the health and social care sectors to gain understanding of the potential value of psychology in these sectors. On completion of this unit learners will have considered the psychological approach to studying health and social care. The unit encourages reflection, and will be valuable to those learners intending to work with people in a caring capacity. It will also be useful to learners who intend to progress to study at a higher level. The psychological approach is embedded in several other units in the programme and is extended, in particular, in Unit 29: Applied Psychological Perspectives for Health and Social Care, and Unit 30: Health Psychology.
