Motivation and employee well-being One of the many factors that form part of individual processes is Motivation and Emotion.

The first part of this semester course aims to introduce the student to the foundational theories of motivation and emotion. The second part of this semester course is concerned with the recognition and classification of psychological disorders and the management and promotion of psychological well-being in organisations.
