  • Overview

    Lifestyle is largely determined by an individual functioning in a socio-environmental context that places some limitations on choice and resultant health. This unit is designed to assist individuals to develop a positive self-concept, a sound knowledge of lifestyle issues and their implications, and decision-making skills necessary to make wise choices. The focus of this unit is the development of such qualities for personal maintenance and improvement. Movements in this direction are achieved by analysing the processes involved in developing individuals capable of taking control of their lifestyles and resultant health. Much of this analysis will be self-focused.
