Understanding Human Behaviour, Health and Wellness

This course introduces frameworks for understanding and evaluating health and illness. Course objectives include the development of an understanding of medical expertise, the development of awareness of Western, Eastern and Cross Cultural models of health and illness and the appreciation of the lived experience of people who suffer within the continuum of "normal" and “abnormal” behavior across human beings and cultures. The course objectives will be considered and explored in relationship to arts-based theory and expressive arts practice.
