The Context of Well-being: Fit, Facets, and Fairness

Dr. Prilleltensky will share a multi-dimensional model of wellbeing (I-COPPE) that includes both perceptual and contextual appraisals. He will propose that individuals can enhance their “fitness” in each dimension of I-COPPE and review an evidence-based intervention. Finally, he will discuss the impact of fairness on wellness and share a model to promote well-being in applied settings with a proactive, collective approach.
