The present tutorial embraces both well-established and modern research models and data. Section 1 is devoted to theoretical and methodological bases of health psychology; section 2 studies destructive psychological factors affecting health; section 3 discusses health psychology approaches with respect to primary, secondary and tertiary prevention.
