Positive Images, Stress-Free Living and Disco Soup

positive-images-festival1-372x140

Coventry is about to enjoy a three week festival celebrating the city’s diversity: Positive Images. The festival is in its 21st Anniversary year, and there are plenty of events of interest to health psychologists, including Coventry Healthy Walks, Be Active, Be Healthy; Dosti: The Big Lunch for older South Asian people; Healthy Minds, Mindfulness Meditation, Physical Activity classes, Stress Free Living, and my personal favourite: Disco Soup. This last is a public event where “everyone is invited to peel veg that would otherwise go to waste and cook a delicious soup to eat and share together. And all this whilst listening to good music!” The venue is Broadgate, Coventry on 13th June 2015 between 12 noon and 3pm.

For full details of all the events please visit the festival’s website at http://www.positiveimagesfestival.co.uk/2015/05/17/progamme-2015/

All our MSc students have the opportunity to participate in Coventry University’s Global Leaders Programme. For the 2014/15 academic year this includes a trip to Sri Lanka.

Students from the MSc Health Psychology will visit Sri Lanka for ten days, following a programme organised by our international partner Colombo Institute of Research and Psychology.  They will learn about the healthcare system, health issues and the wider culture in Sri Lanka. Students will also engage with counselling initiatives and deliver invited lectures to CIRP students on health psychology topics. Our group will also support students with research going on in CIRP.

Further details of future opportunities for international trips will be provided during induction week. For further information about Coventry’s Global Leaders Programme click here.
