About

The University of South Florida St Petersburg Master of Arts in Psychology - Risk, Resilience, and Prevention provides study of biological, social, developmental and cognitive bases of health and human behavior, with concentrated emphasis on how adjustment in these realms serves as the platform for later health and chronic disease outcomes.

Overview

Learning outcomes

Psychology - Risk, Resilience, and Prevention program at University of South Florida St Petersburg also has a unique concentration in Risk, Resilience, and Prevention (RRP). With the competencies promoted in this concentration, we seek to reinvigorate the workforce with professionals who are able to promote human capital and reduce risk of both untoward health outcomes and behavioral and community problems like school dropout rates and youth aggression and violence. Prevention and early intervention are key; instead of waiting for undesired behaviors to occur and then reacting (with accompanying costs) investments are made proactively to cultivate protective social, academic, and health-promoting behaviors and skills required for success in school and life.
