Class Activities

Throughout the semester, there will be many class activities and demonstrations, most of which you must be present for. Following each one, you will complete and submit a thoughtful reflective summary using the Class Activity Form below. Note that to do well, you need to incorporate some of the science of health psychology.


Below is a list of planned class activities. The list may be updated as the semester progresses. Note that with very few exceptions, the class activity form is due within three days of the activity.
