    Abstract

    This article provides an overview of the current and potential role of health psychology in sexual health care. Research, which applies various behaviour change techniques, is reviewed alongside one of the most extensively used theories, the Theory of Planned Behaviour (see Conner and Sparks 2009). This paper aims to link theory to practice giving the reader an indication of the range of work that health psychologists are involved in, and how this could be applied to sexual healthcare practice which supports positive behaviour change.
