Extreme and unusual environments (EUEs) are so named due to the unique challenges they pose to human performance. In this online unit you will learn how EUEs are characterised, and how living and/or working in an EUE can influence human functioning. In this context, you will consider how individuals and groups can manage distress and enhance resilience. Extreme environments considered include Antarctica, outer space, military operations, disaster sites, and cults. In this unit, you will examine how intrapersonal, interpersonal, and organisational factors influence the challenges posed by extreme environments. This unit would be of benefit to students with an interest in factors which influence human performance and resilience, and to students who work in, or intend to work in, extreme environments.
