HHE5225 Foundations of Holistic Health Education
This course overviews a holistic approach to health education. We consider health as an interdisciplinary field and look at its defining terms and their usage. During the course we touch upon such topics as salutogenesis; treating whole persons and not illnesses; health, wellness, and metaphors for healing; self-care and client/patient involvement; health and relationship; health and spirituality; health of individuals in communities and as part of the environment. We look into Integral Theory as an integrative model. Also tying everything together is a big theme of language, health, and education, and how to present ourselves in ways that reach people (clients, patients, and fellow professionals). This course is writing intensive.
