7 Dimensions of Wellness Research Opportunities

In 1990, the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point academic program in Wellness and Health Promotion created the 7 dimensions of wellness assessment under the direction of R. Anne Abbott, PhD. (Professor Emeritus of Health Promotion). The 7-dimension model was the first to include the environmental dimensions of wellness. Although the 7 dimensional model has been adapted and replicated around the globe, no research to determine validity or reliability has ever been published.

We are seeking transparency and support in proposing a Well-Being Study, Thanks you for your consideration!

If you would be interested in working with us please contact us.

About Us

Wellness as a Philosophy

Wellness is a philosophy, a way of living healthy. University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP) has a long history in helping create the wellness movement. The Health Promotion and Wellness (UWSP-HPW) academic program introduced in 1987 and continues to produce professionals with a Health Promotion and Wellness Bachelor of Science degree. Over the last 2 decades, UWSP-Health Promotion and Wellness academic program has promoted that survival of the species requires more than fitness and created the seven dimensions of Wellness.

Why Seven Dimensions

Why seven dimensions you might ask? In 1990 our student marketing class felt it was important to add the dimension of environmental and submitted the first design for a 7 dimensional model. It was felt six dimensions  implied perfect balance, while seven implied fluidness, i.e. we are always in motion, transforming energy, constantly changing as we try stay in a balanced state of homeostasis. As individuals and communities, we embraced this emerging world view of interconnectedness.

Internal/External

Several of the dimensions are specific to internal social, physical, emotional, intellectual mind-body connections. Others, career, environmental and spiritual represent external and we constantly balance between the internal and external as a whole systems healing process.
