This beautifully illustrated, full color text invites students into all of the dimensions of personal health promotion and disease prevention. There are eight new thematic features, two new chapters, and a revised, more logical organization in the fifth edition. This revision also introduces the integration of an impressive collection of author-written supplements. The instructor's and student manuals include references to other resources in a comprehensive program, making for a total learning and teaching experience. Few college courses teach life skills that truly enhance the quality and longevity of a healthy life. Health and Wellness, Fifth Edition will provide that fitting legacy. Through thoughtful exploration of holistic perspectives of personal health, i.e., physical health, emotional health, mental health, social and environmental, and spiritual health, the text will provide students with the skills necessary for the critical decisions regarding all health related issues. The text also addresses a growing body of evidence that suggests unhealthy behaviors such as alcohol and substance abuse, overeating, and lack of proper exercise and rest are all too often the result of inappropriate coping with the pressures of stress. This theme is integrated throughout, with Managing Stress boxes in the text, stress reduction techniques in the appendix, and stress reduction ancillaries for both students and instructors.
