|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject explores the science of the factors that enable individuals to operate at the peak of their potential; including how to participate in more engaging activities, how to live healthier, be more resilient, have more satisfying relationships and lead more productive and fulfilling lives.
The subject will explore teachable skills and pathways for cultivating wellbeing. Students will be exposed to a variety of disciplines including psychology, social science, education, philosophy, sports science, sociology, and organisational science.
Students will learn about the historical and philosophical views of a life-well lived; the paradigm shift from problem-focused to strengths-based approaches; and the evolution of the view of the human, from passive stimulus-response beings to active, self-directed agents.
Students will apply interventions that have been evaluated using the scientific method to increase their own wellbeing as well as the wellbeing of those around them.
