EcoWellness: The Missing Factor in Holistic Wellness Models
Reese, Ryan F.; Myers, Jane E.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v90 n4 p400-406 Oct 2012
A growing body of multidisciplinary literature has delineated the benefits that natural environments have on physical and mental health. Current wellness models in counseling do not specifically address the impact of nature on wellness or how the natural world can be integrated into counseling. The concept of EcoWellness is presented as the missing link in wellness models and counseling. Integrating EcoWellness in counseling provides new and potentially powerful interventions to enhance wellness across the life span.
