My Courses

PSY3405 HD32 ”Critical” Health Psychology,  Spring 2016

PSY3405 HD32 ”Critical” Health Psychology, Spring 2016

This course provides an overview of existing psychological and epidemiological findings on the relationship between behavior and disease. The course explores how behavior, emotion and cognition can influence disease processes and examines the impact of stress and perceived control of one’s destiny on coronary, immune and infectious diseases and symptoms. The biological processes of several relevant chronic illnesses are covered as well as related racial and social economic health disparities. Templates for understanding and treating chronic illness including social support, referral and interventions for optimal physical and mental health are discussed. The interdisciplinary theme of this course will provide an overview of extant literature on theories of health psychology within the context of critical race theory, epidemiology, research methods, philosophy of science, biological anthropology, sociology, as well as applied health/medical fields for an enriched understanding of the biopsychosocial approach to health and illness. Lectures and in-class activities as well as films, guest lecturers, and interactive computer programs make up this textbook-free course with required readings made available through CityTech’s OpenLab and Open Educational Resources (OER).

My Clubs

Math Club

Math Club

What do mathematicians do? Can mathematics be fun and interesting? Do you like free pizza? The Math Club is open to everyone with an interest in logic puzzles, games of chance or strategy, and mathematics in general. We host a variety of math related events, math talks, math games, math puzzles, field trips, math competitions, and more. Feel free to stop by on Thursdays in Namm N719, from 1-2pm.

Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) Club

Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) Club

The Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) Leadership Program at City Tech is designed to promote, foster, and recognize diverse student leaders, and their ability to motivate, inspire, and positively influence others on campus and in the community. Peer Leaders are chosen and provided training to facilitate workshops in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
