Section Information for Spring 2019

This course examines theories, research findings and best practices of peer education, especially focused on emerging adults and university settings.  We will also explore the foundational concepts of the science of well-being, particularly in regard to practices which can be taught or mentored in a one-on-one setting: identifying strengths and values, practicing mindfulness, and clarifying a sense of meaning and purpose for one’s life.  Students will be supervised in conducting a practicum outside of the classroom in which they work in a structured format on teaching/mentoring fellow students in the cultivation of these well-being practices.
