PSYCH 113 - Stress & Self-Management

3 credits

This course explores stress from biobehavioral, psychosocial and cultural perspectives. The philosophies of holistic health and integrative medicine and the psychology of self-management guide students to a personal awareness of stressors and ways to cope more efficiently with them. Research issues relevant to the field are considered, along with empirically validated cognitive-behavioral change techniques and mind-body disciplines. Each student receives individual guidance to plan and implement a personally chosen behavior change project to enable him/her to manage stress more optimally.

Prerequisites: PSYCH 101 Introduction to Psychology .
