Public Health is about more than campaigning for people to do more exercise, stop smoking or eat more healthily. This innovative masterclass challenges students’ pre-conceptions about the role of health studies through the exploration of contemporary research into aggressive behaviours (such as domestic violence, gang culture and terrorism).
Full Event Details:
When people think about health promotion and public health they often think about campaigns to get people to change their behaviour (do more exercise, stop smoking, eat more healthily etc). But the BSc (Hons) Health Studies (Public Health) is about these kinds of issues and much more. This session will focus on aggression (including domestic violence, bullying, guns and gangs, wars and terrorism – as well as more subtle forms of aggression). Drawing on research that the Public Health team are currently involved in, the session will focus on how far aggression - is recognsied as a health issue and the kinds of actions that are being developed to address this. It will provide a taster for the kinds of approaches we take on the BSc (Hons) Health Studies (Public Health).
