Health psychology, broadly speaking, examines the influence of behaviors, psychological conditions, and social factors on health outcomes. Key to this enterprise is the development, rigorous testing, and implementation of evidence-based interventions targeting these influences, with the overarching goal of improving individual and population health. This chapter provides an overview of intervention development and empirical testing, with special emphasis paid to the randomized controlled trial (RCT).
