Promoting Human Wellness: New Frontiers for Research, Practice, and Policy

Synopsis

"This very important work calls for research and policy-making that is proactive, multi-level, multi-method, and interdisciplinary--not disease-driven. It synthesizes perspectives on wellness that have the potential to produce a paradigm shift in research and policy planning, implementation, and evaluation." -- Lene Levy-Storms, University of California, Los Angeles, Department of Medicine/Geriatrics

"[This book] helps broaden the field of inquiry and legitimates the social and political perspectives in health care research and planning." --Ellen R. Shaffer, University of California, San Francisco, Program in Medical Ethics
