Book Description

Foster well-being in an institutional setting Human services workers are consistently discovering more about how important adult well-being is as a foundation of positive human development. Adult Development and Well-Being: The Impact of Institutional Environments closely examines this relationship and provides creative strategies to improve outcomes for adults within institutional settings or systems. Leading experts discuss the latest research, offer insightful perspectives on adult development issues, and provide policy recommendations to effectively foster change. This important resource targets specific issues and provides practical answers to questions about how to positively affect human behavior by cultivating well-being. Social work professionals know that adult development and well-being are directly impacted by institutional setting.
