Sinopsis: This book is a creative blend of health philosophy and practical applications in personal growth for adults. It was developed over fifteen years from the use of a synthesis of materials that are on the leading edge of health promotion, disease prevention, motivation theory, inspirational thought and scientific research on health behavior change. It is an integrated approach that deals with the four dimensions of well-being: the physiologic - optimizing health of the body; mental - practicing skills in stress management, decision making and life planning; psychosocial - understanding self and relationship skills; and spiritual - using core beliefs, purpose in life and transcendent connections to inspire high quality living.
Drawing from their personal experience to balance and integrate their lifestyles and to meet challenging obstacles and major setbacks, Dr. & Mrs. Bacchus have achieved a breath of coverage and a depth of personal application that have helped hundreds of adult students and workshop attendees develop their own plans for personal wellness. The materials have been used in workshops and seminars at major worksites, in a college level course at the University of Maryland University College, and in presentations to physicians and healthcare professionals on topics such as "The Future of Healthcare: A Model for Healing the Whole Person."
Starting with the basics of how the human body works, the authors have defined a framework for understanding the interdependence of the body and mind. This framework is then applied to the four dimensions of function to show how whole-person function is so much greater than the mere sum of parts. The result is a practical, personal approach to self-examination, self-understanding, self-acceptance, self-management and self-actualization. This, of course, within the individuals core beliefs. No one course of action is prescribed. The path to designing a personal action plan is illuminated.
This book may be used as a self-study, customized program, or as an instructor lead course in wellness. After completing the practical application exercises throughout, users of this material will be able to use the book to teach their own wellness promotion program, if they so desire, and to have a workbook for their long-term personal wellness plan.
From the Publisher: Dr. Al Bacchus and his wife, Carol, have fulfilled one of their life-purposes in pulling together a unique synthesis of health philosophy and practical advice for personal health promotion. Their definition of "wellness" as "the product of the attitudes and effort we bring to the process of living the best life possible," captures their approach to well-being. In this book they present examples of how to blend science, philosophy, self-disclosures, personal experimentation and motivational tools to pursue wellness. A framework for understanding the integrated self and to use emotional intelligence to achieve specific goals is a needed skill in this age of rapid change. As Adjunct Associate Professor in the School of Medicine at George Washington University, Dr. Bacchus is involved in using the foundation principles in this book to bridge the consumer and healthcare professional in partnership for promoting optimum health. The principles presented were synthesized over a period of fifteen years of teaching a course in health education at the University of Maryland.
The Foreword to the book is written by Dr. John Burt, Former Dean of the College of Health and Human Performance at the University of Maryland. Dr. Burt highlights the need for addressing the public health epidemic of suicide attempts as an example of the role of wellness education. The content editor is Margaret Savage, MD, MPH, former Director of Medical Programs at the Koop Foundation, Inc.
