Upcoming Talk: A little bit of stress does you good

Posted in: HealthResSW

On the evening of Wednesday 2nd July 2014 Dr Julie Turner-Cobb, a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at the University of Bath, is talking at the Bath Royal Literary and Science Institution on "A little bit of stress does you good: unravelling the meaning of stress for health and well-being in children and adults."

This talk will examine the notion of the popular concept of stress. As well as looking at the science behind how stress can contribute to physical illness, I will also challenge the view that stress is always bad for you. The talk draws from studies of adults across a range of different physical health conditions and takes a life course perspective drawing from research on stress and health in children. I will present a number of different ways to measure stress, from biological sampling to the use of questionnaires and laboratory experiments.

The talk is being held as part of the series of talks organised by the South West of England branch of the British Psychological Society and is a free event open to all.
