Posted by Laura on September 22, 2009
Dunn’s High-Level Wellness defines the difference between wellness and good health, using 4 processes: Being, Belonging, Becoming, and Befitting.
The Health-Illness Continum is a measure of a person’s level of health. This circle of being is a continuously changing state.
Other Models of Health and Illness
Agent-Host-Environment Model -balance=health, imbalance=risk of disease
Health Belief Model -perception of susceptibility to disease, seriousness of a disease, benefits of action (educative)
Health Promotion Model- Self-esteem from environmental interaction
