We are happy to announce the launch of EHPS e-courses. These are short online Health Psychology courses on topics of interest for the EHPS community. The courses will usually take place in 1 to 2 online sessions with the duration of 60-90 minutes each session.
These sessions will be interactive: all participants will be able to see the presenter’s screen, ask questions and talk to one another.

Upcoming courses in 2015 are:

“Illness and treatment perceptions: the role of idiosyncratic beliefs for health outcomes”
