Suggest Two Things People
- How important do you think it is for psychologists to treat problems and help people stay healthy, and prevent problems in the first place? Give examples and use information from a research article to support your ideas.
- Sometimes, trying to stay healthy can be challenging. Can you think of two things that might make it challenging for people to stay healthy? We’ve talked about “learned helplessness,” when people feel like they can’t control what happens to them. How might this make it harder to stay healthy? Can you think of another obstacle?
- Finally, suggest two things people could do to stay healthy. Maybe there’s something special you do for your health – something we haven’t talked about in class. What does science say about how well this works?
