Section Information for Spring 2015
How do individuals, communities and cultures foster and promote well-being, especially when faced with stress and/or crisis? This course will broadly examine the multiple objective and subjective approaches to well-being that exist in the literature, and in every day life. Students will learn how these understandings of the objective and subjective perspectives of well-being can then be applied in health, wellness, and welfare contexts for individuals, communities, and cultures. We will specifically examine how stress and/or crisis challenge well-being, and also serve as a catalyst for the creation and/or promotion of well-being. The role that communication plays in transforming stress and crisis into well-being will be emphasized.
