Summary
This study examined the facilitative erect of an undergraduate wellness laboratory course, as an extension of a wellness lecture course, on affecting undergraduate wellness attitudes and behavior. Included in this study was an investigation of the effects of the demographic variables of gender, age, class standing, ethnicity, and living arrangements toward wellness attitudes and behavior. The wellness focus was limited to three components: (1) physical activity, (2) stress management, and (3) nutrition. The study used a pretest-posttest control group design with 54 subjects in the control group, and 65 subjects in the treatment group. The questionnaire used in this investigation was the Wellness Knowledge, Attitude, and Behavior Instrument (Dinger, 1994), amended to address attitudes and behaviors exclusively. The results of this study did not reveal statistically significant differences in the attitudes, or behaviors, of the experimental subjects toward physical activity, stress management, or nutrition, due to additional exposure to a wellness laboratory course. However, participation in a wellness lecture course and a wellness lecture with laboratory component, significantly improved student attitudes toward physical activity and stress management, and student behaviors toward stress management. Gender was found to be a factor in attitudes toward stress management (females had higher scores and displayed the most improvement over time than males in both groups), and nutrition (males in both groups improved over time, while the females declined). Gender was also a factor in behavior toward stress management (both males and females improved over time in both groups, the females recorded higher pretest and posttest scores). Although not significant, attitudes toward physical activity improved over time in both groups, but behavior toward physical activity improved more in the experimental group. Attitudes toward stress management showed mean score improvements in both groups over time, but larger improvements were noted in the experimental group in behavior toward stress management. Both groups showed a decline over time in attitudes toward nutrition, but the control group showed improved scores over time in their behavior toward nutrition
