The interconnectedness of the mind, body, and spirit is integral to achieving "wellness". It is also important to acknowledge the impact each of these three aspects of wellness has upon each of the others. The growing body of research indicating the significant effects of things such as stess, anger, optimism, and healthy relationships on health status will be analyzed and evaluated. Practical strategies related to health advisement will be shared and experimented with during the semester. In this senior level course, we will explore these and many other areas of mind, body, and spirit awareness that are critical to consider when conducting health education programs.
