PSYC20042 - Building Wellbeing and Resilience: Interconnected Factors

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In this unit, you will examine interconnected factors and complex systems that impact wellbeing and resilience at an individual and societal level. At the individual level, you will examine the interplay between mental processes, emotions, and physiology, and assess how to positively influence these areas. You will also evaluate the importance of factors such as sleep, nutrition and diet, exercise, social support, fun, play, and creativity. At a societal level, you will evaluate the impact on wellbeing and resilience of factors such as education, health systems, societal norms and values, and the impact of built and natural environments. Within this interconnected factors framework, you will draw on evidence-based research, tools, approaches, and models, to promote wellbeing and resilience interventions.
