Course description

The mind and the body are intricately linked. In this course we will explore the links between mental processes and behaviours as related to health and illness. Topics include theories of healthy behaviour, health enhancing behaviour (eg exercise), health risk behaviour (eg smoking), and rehabilitation. This course will challenge you to critically evaluate the role that cognition, society and the environment play in the health of individuals.
