Many expatriates tend to blend different aspects of their home and host cultures, embracing elements they find positive, but can’t or won’t adapt to those parts that don’t fit their identities. Something similar to the shock experienced by those working abroad may be good for our field. While those working in US-based health promotion have intellectual capital to offer other countries, learnings from other cultures could positively reshape our professional identities.


Paul Terry hosts guests Dr. Tsitsi Masvawure, Visiting Lecturer at the College of the Holy Cross, and independent research consultant, along with Wolf Kirsten, Co-Founder & Co-Director at Global Centre for Healthy Workplaces, and President of International Health Consulting.


During the webinar, we shared perspectives of wellness experts from across the globe. Health promotion professionals in the US have embraced a “culture of health” as a prerequisite to affecting positive individual improvements in health and well-being, and you will see that the power of culture is featured prominently by our guests. We will explore the unintended consequences that occur when well-intentioned expats presume to apply ideas that work in one culture to challenges elsewhere as well as how an increasingly global workforce where both communicable and non-communicable diseases know no borders, means more employers are realizing the business advantages of a healthier workplace.

Those who have even a modicum of schooling in nutrition understand the health benefits of policies that limit intake of sugar, salt and fat. Nevertheless, thousands of organizations worldwide, many with a mission to protect health, continue to make sickening levels (literally) of sugar, salt and fat the easy choices for student, patients and employees every day. This restraint about limiting access to bad food, when tobacco free buildings and grounds are now common place, bespeaks the fundamental difference between food and tobacco policy making.  

 

Join our webinar where we discuss these dilemmas with a farmer, a school administrator and an agricultural economist. We will examine the barriers, and opportunities for moving food health policies forward. Unlike the long road that led to policy reforms in tobacco, changing food policy may start with the case for protecting health, but the case for limiting access to bad for you foods will also benefit from a deeper appreciation of how our choices about foods can also be bad for other people, their communities and our planet.

In this webinar featuring Drs. Suzy Harrington and Siyan Baxter, we examine the movement from wellness to wellbeing. The national adoption of the wellbeing concept has been rapid though the term has been elusive per a consensus definition and even more challenging to measure.

Still, it reflects an era of expansiveness, maturation and innovative thinking in health promotion as is exemplified by this month’s article from Oklahoma State University (OSU), who trademarked the moniker “America’s Healthiest Campus®.”

 

Workplaces remain a researcher’s green field for developing robust, scientifically valid, well-being approaches. Proving the well-being case will not come from studies on programs as much as from tailored approaches sensitive to the unique well-being needs and goals of each organization.

 

Dr. Harrington will explain the strategy model she developed in collaboration with OSU stakeholders campus-wide that accounted for the dynamic interactions between individual and organizational well-being. But it will not be until we implement the erudite measurement approaches, such as cost benefit analysis, recommended by Dr. Baxter, that we can aspire to achieve consensus on what constitutes an effective approach to positively influencing well-being.

 

This webinar will explore a truly broader value proposition because we will not do the well-being term justice if it is simply wellness warmed over. If we borrow from the rich well-being traditions of community development and social theory and fortify these with ingredients from positive psychology, brain science and wellness, only then might the well-being term become transformative in the field of health promotion. Please join us with your questions and comments in what is sure to be a thought-provoking and energizing webinar.

This month’s issue of The Art of Health Promotion featured my interview with Donald B. Ardell, author of the landmark book that jump-started the wellness movement entitled, “High Level Wellness: An Alternative to Doctors, Drugs and Disease.” Don has, over the following four decades, written a dozen more books expanding upon his original wellness concept and the earlier model he embraced, that of Dr. Halbert L. Dunn's in the 50s and 60s, with changing models, expanded applications and, an entirely new focus on four dimensions for what he now calls REAL wellness - the R-E-A-L being multiple skills and principles that fit under Reason, Exuberance, Athleticism and Liberty. As you know if you read your journal this month, Don has earned his credentials as a “contrarian,” the focus of the edition. He is as popular as he is polarizing, though Don insists I’m very mistaken about this, that in fact he is loved by all.

 

Well, you can be the judge of that.
 
In this webinar, we’ll discuss wellness - REAL and otherwise and wellness past, present and future.  I’ve also invited Stephanie Pronk, Senior Vice President and Health Transformation Team Leader at AON Hewitt to present on her current projects and offer additional, possibly quite different perspectives on the state of contemporary wellness and well-being. I hope you will join us for what I believe will be a memorable learning opportunity.

In the September/October 2015 issue of The Art of Health Promotion, the “Game-Changers Issue”, we profile seminal leaders in the field, written by other of our country’s top health promotion leaders. We had two goals in mind:  First, for those who come to health promotion from other disciplines, profiling seminal leaders in the field offers a primer on the most indelible concepts that can serve as a foundation for future evidence-based innovation.  As importantly for aspiring game changers, these synopses of the extraordinary work of health promotion’s leaders offer models for what it takes to induce lasting change

In the July/August 2015 issue of The Art of Health Promotion we explore a broader value proposition for worksite wellness and those factors that predispose and reinforce better employee performance. Jessica Grossmeier, PhD, MPH and Nikki Hudsmith, MBA share results from a survey of more than 500 leaders and describe where health and well-being fit among a range of other variables that business leaders watch in the interest of improving business performance. Building on the premise that a broader value proposition necessitates a broader approach to workforce health and well-being, Sheryl Niebuhr, PhD, LP and Grossmeier contribute an article on a “Broader Approach,”making the case for “a more systemic, integrated, and crossfunctional effort serving a broader strategic vision,” where organizational readiness to change is as vital as individual readiness.

In the May/June issue of The Art of Health Promotion, we featured the History of Wellness and celebrated the 40th anniversary of the National Wellness Institute’s (NWI) Conference.  We interviewed leaders of the wellness movement and discussed future directions for wellness.  Join Trina Laube, Education and Outreach Director of NWI, and Meg Jordan, NWI Board Co-Chair, as we discuss the history of wellness and introduce the emerging standards and national certification exams proposed for health coach certification.  Meg will explain the efforts to date of the “National Consortium for Credentialing Health and Wellness Coaches.” 

 

To prepare for this webinar, you may want to visit the American Journal of Health Promotion video archives and review our webinar on “Coaching and Accountability” where we featured coaching experts Susan Butterworth, PhD, Jack Stoltzfus, PhD and Margaret Moore, MBA.  We discussed outcome versus process measures related to holding coaches professionally accountable.

 

Building on this prior webinar, I will also ask Meg and Trina about differences between wellness and “well-being”, whether there should be “well-being” coaching, health coaching in an era of neuroscience, and about issues of loneliness, life purpose and mindfulness and how they are supported today and will be in the future by well-trained health coaches. 

 

Our Guests:

Meg Jordan, PhD, RN, CWP is Department Chair and Professor of Integrative Health Studies at California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco and serves as Co-President of NWI, the first woman leader in the Institute’s 40-year history.  Jordan is on the Executive Board of the National Consortium for Credentialing Health and Wellness Coaches.   USA Today called Jordan “a health trend spotter.”

  The Coaction Issue: Thinking Differently about Steps to Behavior Change
Title The Coaction Issue: Thinking Differently about Steps to Behavior Change
Genre The Art of Health Promotion
Sub-Title

In this webinar we explain “coaction,” a new line of research in health promotion based on findings indicating that success in changing one behavior relates to greater success in other areas, IF interventions are tailored. 
 
This work emanates from Pro-Change Behavior Systems and the Cancer Prevention Research Center at The University of Rhode Island, organizations which have been extraordinarily influential in the direction of the field of health promotion.  Our presenters Johnson and Evers hail from Pro-Change. 
 
Some have hitched their behavior change strategies lately to other concepts they consider cutting edge.  A behavioral economics approach, for example, assumes multiple small steps will evoke sustainable change. Similarly, some suggest that skills and motivation are reticent unless accompanied by frequent cues to action. 
 
These are also valuable methods in supporting change but as I hope this webinar shows, it’s a fool’s errand to propose silver bullets in behavior change.   Coaction results should serve as a reminder that, for many, promoting simultaneous multiple behavior change using tailored communications is a promising intervention approach. And, as you will see in an opening case study offered by our presenter MJ Shaar from the Smarts and Stamina company, steps in an altogether different direction from where you thought you should go may be the best approach.
 
Time will tell whether the fairly complicated and counter-intuitive nomenclature used by coaction researchers will become more common place in wellness or patient education but being open and attentive to research and practitioner approaches led by innovators like Johnson, Evers and Shaar is one way to keep getting better at supporting those you serve.

The slide deck for this webinar can be found here.

In the January/February 2015 issue of The Art of Health Promotion, Editor Paul Terry, PhD explores the Vision of Health Promotion. In addition to fielding vision statements from leaders in this field he features an in-depth interview with Lawrence Green, DrPH who he and countless others consider the field’s greatest visionary.  We are pleased to welcome Dr. Green for this webinar based on this issue of The Art of Health Promotion.

 

Joining the discussion with Dr. Green for this webinar will be Shelley Golden, PhD, MPH of the University of North Carolina. Dr. Golden co-authored a systematic review of over 150 research papers showing that most interventions of the past decades focus on individuals rather than institutions or policies.  The paper won the Lawrence W. Green Paper of the Year Award from the journal Health Education & Behavior. As much as Green’s imprimatur graces Golden’s research, it was interesting to hear his opinion that “a case can be made that is more reassuring.”  He said this in reference to two “great public health promotion success stories” he is presently writing about that show the links between epidemiological research and community health changes resulting from state and federal laws inspired by the research. 

 

In this webinar we will ask why, in spite of such a lucid model as Green’s PRECEDE (profiled in this issue), our profession still tilts so far toward individuals and their health habits rather than environment and culture?  Golden summarizes the challenge well when describing Dr. Green’s teachings:  “His work epitomizes the balance of individual agency and structural factors.  In his writing on ecological models, he reminds us that health promotion is a broad field that recognizes health as complex and socially and individually determined. He teaches that population health is modifiable if we are willing to understand problems sufficiently, assess the resources and limitations of our working environment, and partner in meaningful ways with the people whose health we aim to improve.”

 

Questions planned for this webinar will challenge Drs. Green and Golden to consider learnings from the past as they should inform our direction for the future of the field of health promotion.  As always, we will depend on you to join in with your questions and comments to assure this will be an interactive and fascinating session.

In the September/October issue of The Art of Health Promotion (TAHP), we examine how the theory of “Perceived Organizational Support” (POS) has been applied to improving employee wellbeing.  The research discussed in the article by Drs. Robert Eisenberger and Linda Shanock affirms that how your organization treats you will affect how you treat your organization.  
 
Dr. Robert Eisenberger, a professor at the University of Houston, is the discoverer of POS and in our interview he described organizational support theory as follows:  “The key concept of perceived organizational support holds that in order to meet basic psychological needs and judge the value of increased efforts on the organization’s behalf, employees form a general perception concerning the extent to which the organization values their contributions and cares about their wellbeing.”

In this issue of The Art of Health Promotion, we explore issues of accountability in coaching.  As you will learn from our coaching experts there is some disagreement about the fairness of outcome versus process measures for holding coaches accountable or paying for performance.  Coaches are unanimous, however, in their belief that the worksite culture matters in sustainable behavior change. Yet, even on this point they vary in how they think culture impacts their approach to coaching and how they are held accountable.

In the May/June issue of The Art of Health Promotion (TAHP), we explored the relationship between health and employee performance. Predicting performance is like predicting marital, work or company longevity. More often than not we’re caught by surprise when couples break up, when high performance athletes don’t jell as a team, when a star in one workplace doesn’t measure up in another, or when a high flying company crashes. Adding individual health to the equation is just one of, literally, countless variables.
