Wellness and Prevention brings Preventative Counseling (2004), one of prevention's founding texts, firmly into the twenty-first century.Wellness and Preventionthoroughly updates and significantly expands on discussions of practical applications and emerging best practices, and in it, counselors and counseling psycholgists will find evidence-based, contemporary guidance to help them engage in needed efforts to help clients and the general population to enhance their overall wellness and ward off future dysfunction. It's well-suited for adoption in counselor-education and includes explicit connections to CACREP accreditation standards. It's also an excellent choice for programs in psychology, where the APA-approved prevention guidelines for psychologists are now available, and in social work, where prevention and community change have long been hallmarks.

--- from the publisher


"The preeminent expert on prevention, Robert Conyne, has given us a special gift. Counseling for Wellness and Prevention is a significant contribution for the present and a cutting-edge guide to the future for all helping professionals. Here you will find up to date research and immediately practical information on how to use these concepts in counseling and therapy sessions. In addition, Conyne goes beyond this to show environmental influences. More important, he shows us how we can enhance mental and physical health for both clients and ourselves through understanding and action beyond the session. This is a book for us all. I could not recommend it more highly." Allen E. Ivey, EdD, ABPP, Distinguished University Professor (Emeritus), University of Massachusetts–Amherst, and Courtesy Professor, University of South Florida–Tampa

"This book is Conyne’s work at its finest. He has been a leading thinker, author, teacher, practitioner, and leader in counseling and psychology for four decades, and this book is excellent. He has taken the original concept of preventive counseling that he presented almost thirty years ago and revised fifteen years ago and has conducted a thorough examination of the field to provide us with this current version. This text provides a historical perspective on the development of prevention as an essential element of wellness and well-being, offers an in-depth examination and guidelines for understanding and applying prevention approaches today, and provides guidance for the direction the work is taking for the future. It’s an outstanding contribution for educators, scholars, and practitioners for understanding and implementing prevention in all aspects of health and wellness, in counseling, psychology, social work, and education." Arthur Horne, PhD, Dean Emeritus and Distinguished Research Professor, University of Georgia
