PSYC235M - Health Psychology (3-0-3)

This course is created to help the student understand issues of health and wellness based on the triangle of health psychology: mind, body, and spirit. It is designed to have the student better understand the role that stress, mindset, positive and negative relationships, and life choices play in one’s overall health. The course also addresses stress reduction concepts, positive coping styles, the formation of healthy relationships, and the building of healthy lifestyles, as well as the affect that all of these have on one’s overall quality of life. This course brings to the students’ awareness the factors and behavioral methods that facilitate a resilient quality of life that is very different in nature and practice from the coping style of psychosocial survival. Prerequisites: PSYC110M, ENGL110M with a grade of “C” or better. (Fulfills Social Science requirement)
