Whole-person wellness depends on at least seven dimensions: physical, emotional, spiritual, vocational, environmental, social and intellectual. This module addresses each of these primary dimensions of wellness and provides strategies for maximizing wellness through the aging process. Purpose, mindfulness, and activity programming will be among the specific topics for discussion. Students are also introduced to the effects of race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, social and economic differences and cross-cultural variations in the perceptions and treatment of aging adults.
