Unit 8 Psychology P1- Explain the principle psychological perspectives. P2- Explain different psychological approaches to health practice. P3- Explain different psychological approaches to social care practice. M1- Assess different psychological approaches to study, consider how well the different approaches explain behaviour. M2- Compare two psychological approaches to health and social care service provision.
It is also important to recognise that the concept of health is relative. A person’s view of what is ‘normal’ health is influenced by factors such as their gender, social class, ethnicity or age (Haralambos M, Heald R, O’ Gorman J and Smith F, 1996). The social model of health suggest that indivual and community health results from structural and cultural influences affecting ethnic minorities, women, the elderly and other particular groups of people. This relative view of health focuses on the barriers and difficulties which prevent the ‘ill’ or ‘disabled’ from having access to health and ‘normality’, as this interpretation of ‘health’ takes into consideration the wider social pressures of
Where are they? When do events occur? (Stanhope, 2012). Asking the questions how and why help with the determining factors of the health event(s) which are related to factors, exposures, characteristics, behaviors, and contexts that determine the patterns. “Determinants may be individual, relational or social, communal, or environmental which makes this focus of the investigation of causes and association analytical epidemiology” (Stanhope, 2012, p.256).
401). “Community health consists of three characteristics: status, structure, and process”. (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2012, pg. 400). These characteristics reveal statistical, socio economical and epidemiological data and/or indicators of health risk or incidence of the community being assessed.
P3 – Explain patterns and trends in the health and illness among different social groupings. M2 – Use different sociological perspectives to discuss patterns and trends of health and illness in two different social groups. In this report I will discuss the different patterns and trends among different social groupings. Measuring health There are three main sources that we get health and illness statistics from, the government, charitable organizations and pressure groups, and academic researchers and other authors. There are many different statistics that the government collects and produces.
Unit IV Epidemiology - “epi” – on,upon, befall - “demo” – people, population, man -“ology” – study of -The study of the distribution and determinants of health-related states in specified populations and the application of this study to control health problems. What is it? *Quantitative discipline based on the principles of research methodology and statistics. *Have made a significant contribution to the identification of risk factor *Distribution – how are cases of the condition of interest spread across a population differently by gender,age,geographic location, socio economic status, other features? *Determinants – what risk factors or antecedent events are associated with the appearance of a disease or condition?

Introduction In this report I will be explaining different psychological approaches to health practice followed by explaining different psychological approaches to social care practice. I will then go on to compare two psychological approaches to health and social care service provision. I will then finish by evaluating two psychological approaches to health and social care provision. I will include the social learning approach and humanistic approach and explain how these theories and ideas specifically relating to health practice. Also I will include the behaviourist approach and cognitive approach and link them to social care practice.
