Description:

The only book that links psychological wellness with organizational and community health "This book is a historically significant and unique contribution to understanding and enhancing positive human development. Based on the presence and integration of strengths in individuals, institutions, and communities, the Prilleltenskys provide a compelling, dynamic, and singularly creative vision for promoting health and well-being among all people." -Richard M. Lerner, PhD, Tufts University "Whether as educators, students, practitioners, researchers, policy makers, advocates, or activists, this book provides an extremely useful framework for all of us to attempt this to the best of our ability and circumstances." -Dr Iain Butterworth, Fulbright Scholar, Senior LecturerSchool of Health and Social Development, Deakin University, Australia "Vision, values, and action for individual, group/organization, and community development is the message of this important book. The emphasis on moving theory to active practice particularly impressed me. This book is strong in its respect for the individual, diversity, and social justice." -Allen E. Ivey, EdD, ABPP, University of Massachusetts, Amherst Isaac and Ora Prilleltensky have spent many years studying wellness and well-being from a community perspective, and have practiced in a variety of settings where wellness is emphasized. Promoting Well-Being builds on their knowledge base to connect treatment with prevention, counseling with advocacy, and personal change with community change and social justice. This resource is unique in showing how these areas can work in unison to enhance the well-being of individuals and the community alike. Addressing challenges such as disability, injustice, arrogance, and complacency, and using visual tools, including charts and diagrams, case studies, innovative exercises, and engaging prose, the authors provide readers with important insight into how these domains interact as well as strategies for helping clients harness the benefits of these interactions. Promoting Well-Being is an essential tool for psychologists, counselors, social workers, human service professionals, public health professionals, and students in these fields.
