Behavioral Medicine

Behavioral Medicine is an inter-disciplinary field that focuses on the biological,  psychological, and social factors of a person’s medical illness, overall health, and functioning.  This specialty focuses on the mind-body relationship and the connection between psychological and medical issues including pain management, depression, anxiety, and stress. 

By applying theories, techniques, and interventions that are consistent with this approach, a psychologist with a specialty in behavioral medicine can successfully work with patients who have co-morbid medical and psychological problems in the areas of prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.
