Dr. Devona Stalnaker-Shofner, core faculty in the Department of Applied Psychology at Antioch University New England (AUNE), has been selected to present at the American Counseling Association (ACA) Conference & Expo to be held March 31-April 6, 2016, in Montréal, QC, Canada.
The ACA is the world’s largest association with more than 56,000 members, and is comprised of professional counselors in various practice settings.
Stalnaker-Shofner’s workshop will offer practical wellness information based on “The Indivisible Self: An Evidence-Based Model of Wellness” (Myers & Sweeney, 2004), with the goal of defining personal wellness, exploring barriers to wellness, and developing a personal wellness plan. The workshop will feature both educational and experiential components. Participants will take the Five Factor Wellness Inventory, and receive a copy of their scores and accompanying Five Factor Wellness (5F-Wel) and Habit Change Workbook, which will serve as the basis for the development of a personal wellness plan.
