IDIS 2200 - Stress, Illness and Coping


3 cr. 3 hr. This course may be offered less than once every two years.

This course focuses on the relationship between stress and illness, and on therapeutic interventions to decrease stress to promote health, to cope with chronic illness, and in some cases to reduce the risk of stress-induced diseases. Particular attention is given to holistic interventions supported by current research. Social, economic, political and cultural factors are critically examined to facilitate understanding of access to complementary and alternative health care interventions from various philosophical perspectives across the globe.
