The Whole Person Wellness Approach

UntitledUnderstanding the Whole Person Wellness Approach

Too often in health care the focus is on different parts of the person to the exclusion of the others. Thus we have too much specialization in caring for persons: Specialist dealing with the body, the mind, the spirit, social relationships and the environment.

The individual as a “Whole Person” gets lost in all of this, yet this is the only approach to self care and other care that will truly make us well.

This PowerPoint should help us all to better understand what it means to care for the Whole Person and thus to promote WELLNESS.
