CPSYC 1451 Holistic Approach to Healing

This course provides an introduction to the concepts of health and wellness with an emphasis on the impact and interaction of psychological, physical, and spiritual factors. Health is regarded as more than the absence of disease in the physical body; it is regarded as consciously cultivating beliefs and behaviors that promote wellness. Wellness depends on the ability to become a fully integrated, fully functioning person. This course provides the student with an opportunity to expand their perspective on physical, emotional and spiritual well-being and healing, and to integrate a holistic approach into their personal and professional lives. Students are encouraged to examine their own beliefs about health and wellness. Class sessions include lecture, discussion and experiential exercises. This course is required for all Holistic Psychology majors.
