This course will offer insight into stress, its consequences, and what individuals can do to cope. There is a balance of theory and applied information, and although we will concentrate on psychological variables, physiological issues are also considered. Among the topics discussed: popular models of stress, sources of stress, the influence of cognitions and personality on one's appraisal process, and strategies for successful stress management.
Lectures for this course will be pre-recorded and available until the end of the exam period. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
