KPE220H1: Psychosocial Development

Psychosocial domains of human development and optimal functioning over the lifespan are considered in this course. Developmental psychology, positive psychology, health psychology, behavioural medicine, and performance psychology theory and research provide students with foundational knowledge and lifelong skills for personal growth and development, and for diverse roles as kinesiology graduates. Theories of development and behaviour change provide frameworks for exploring topics such as health and wellbeing, resilience, love, relationships, enjoyment, meaning and fulfillment, flourishing, happiness, personal growth, and positive aspects of human functioning. Students will be encouraged to think how psychosocial development, personal experiences, culture, and physical activity influence health and well-being across the lifespan.
