Apply today for “Emotional Well-Being and Physical Health,” a five-day short course co-hosted by the Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness and the the Research Department of Behavioural Science and Health at University College London. With a target audience of junior scholars (junior faculty and postdoctoral fellows) and doctoral-level graduate students, this course provides attendees with a systematic and rigorous overview of the relationship between positive emotional well-being and physical health, drawing on a variety of empirical methods with careful consideration of measurement issues.​

The course is interdisciplinary in nature, and will cover topics including epidemiology, genetics, interventions, social determinants, biobehavioural processes, and methodology. By providing state-of-the-art, evidence-based knowledge, the course aims to prepare and inspire a future generation of scholars and researchers to work in this field. Upon completion of the course, participants will have a solid understanding of recent research and discourse on the linkages between emotional well-being and physical health outcomes and will be prepared to use this information to inform their own education, research, and teaching. In addition, participants will begin to build an interdisciplinary network of potential partners and collaborators with shared interests in the field.
