Meet the Scientist – October 24th
Healthy body, healthy mind: What we can learn from Health Psychology
As a Psychologist, Teresa uses her skills to understand how people think, feel and behave. Teresa is especially interested in how we can support people to stay healthy. This might include doing more exercise or eating healthy foods. Sometimes it involves talking about our feelings or spending time with our friends. Teresa will explain what Psychologists do.
Here are some optional questions for you to try and answer before the webinar:
What does it mean to be healthy?
How do thoughts impact our health?
What can we do to stay healthy?
