Abstract: The health promotion/wellness movement is a relatively recent phenomenon. Health professionals continue to struggle with definitions of these constructs, implementation protocol, and evaluative strategies. As a means to address these issues, Wellness Perspectives: Research, Theory and Practice offers a three-part series. Part I will discuss the brief history of the health promotion and wellness field including some philosophical tenets and emerging trends. Part 2 of the series will outline a protocol to plan and to implement effective health promotion/wellness programs. Part 3 will discuss some current issues related to the evaluation of health pro- motion/wellness programs and discuss guidelines for effective evaluation.
