PES 3560: Psychological Aspects of Health and Physical Activity
Prerequisites: PES 1301, 2195. This course explores the psychological attributes necessary for sustained and successful implementation of a healthy and physically active lifestyle. Positive performance enhancers such as drive, commitment, confidence, focus, perseverance, intuition and trust will be examined as well as the implications of performance inhibitors such as anxiety, depression, excessive ambition and aggression. Students become familiar with important motivation and intervention strategies such as psyching and relaxation, imagery and visualization, goal setting and causal attribution that lead to a fully functioning self system. The course also explores affiliation theory, team cohesion, and the concept of groupthink. The course incorporates significant use of narrative fiction and nonfiction books and film to illustrate the content.
