BB H 048 Values and Health Behavior (1)
This is a 1credit course designed for non-BB H majors who want a greater understanding of concepts related to health and health promotion and who want to learn practical skills related to optimizing health and improving lifestyle behaviors. General health topics that are relevant to students as they adjust to the transition into--and through--college are introduced through a values and decision-making approach to learning. The course is designed to give students a broader understanding of both short-term and long-term wellness and how it is affected by behavior. Concepts regarding personal health and development are introduced using individual and group activities. To impact behavior, a model for decision-making that includes facts, risks, and consequences is utilized within an experiential learning approach. Students will work individually to perform self-assessment of health-related activities (e.g., nutrition, alcohol and drug-related knowledge and risk behaviors) and in small groups to further assess and describe the effects of health behaviors on short-term and long-term wellness. The course will be evaluated through completion of several short reaction papers to reading assignments and internet research, a group project on health promotion, completion of a health-related journal, and completion of a personal behavior change plan.
