Assignment: In all aspects of life, sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Learning how to cope with the losses is extremely important as loss can affect our health in many ways.Chapters 2, 3, and 4 focus on emotional and mental health as well as stress management. Identify a “loss” situation — perhaps loss of a job, a scholarship, or a relationship.
1. Discuss (in details) how this type of loss might affect the way people think a) about themselves, b) their mental health, and c) how it might affect their behavior.
2. Brainstorm ways in which the constructs of Health Behavior Theories (covered in Chapter 1) might be used to help people cope with this type of loss.
