After completing your assigned readings on wellness and resilience, create a brief case scenario regarding the application of the wellness model to a targeted group of clients within a community. Once you have described your scenario and population, address the following:
- Describe the counselor’s role in promoting optimal human development, wellness, and mental health through prevention and educational activities.
- Discuss the importance of the counselor’s role in developing cultural self-awareness; promoting cultural social justice, advocacy, and conflict resolution; as well as other culturally supported behaviors, in order to promote optimal wellness and growth of the human spirit.
- Incorporate theories and models of individual, cultural, couples, family, and community resilience as well as theories for facilitating optimal development and wellness over the life span into your post.
