Effectiveness of Wellness-Based Classroom Guidance in Elementary School Settings: A Pilot Study
Villalba, Jose A.; Myers, Jane E.
Journal of School Counseling, v6 n9 2008
A three-session, wellness-based classroom guidance unit was developed based on the Indivisible Self wellness model and presented to 55 students in 5th grade. Participants completed the Five Factor Wellness Inventory, Elementary School Version, before and after the unit. Wellness scores were significantly and positively higher at post-testing for Total Wellness and three of five wellness factors addressed in the guidance sessions (Creative, Social, and Physical Self). Follow-up studies revealed that students with low wellness scores at pre-test improved the most. Implications for elementary school counselors are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
