Course description

What do we mean by wellbeing? Why is it that some people get stressed over things that others would take in their stride? What makes us happy? This course tries to answer these questions, and many others, as it explores the psychology of health, happiness, and wellbeing. You will learn about the psychology of stress, as well as ways to manage it, alongside the role of personality on health, and the powers of positive behaviour.
