Class #: 20037 Section: M001 # Credits: 3
This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to the psychological, somatic, and environmental facets of health and well-being. We will discuss theory and research as a means of exploring issues related to the psychogenic (psychological factors inducing or protecting against disease) and somatic aspects (physical factors inducing or protecting against disease) of health, and how these aspects of self interact with the environment in health maintenance, as well as the pathophysiology and etiology of disease. That is, a Biopsychosocial Model forms the base of the class. Further, students are expected to explore a variety of stress management approaches. We will use a seminar format; thus, exploration and expression of ideas are desiderata.
