Abstract

This project provides a practical approach to the development of program guides which serve as the main resources for selected health education sessions within a workplace wellness program. Five guides have been developed which strive to meet a number of needs identified within this relatively new field of education. The goal of this project is to provide material which is comprehensive and user friendly for the educator/facilitator, while ensuring a product which meets the high expectations of organizations in terms of efficiency and effectiveness in affecting employee health behaviors. -- The guides provide the facilitator with material and resources needed to deliver quality education sessions. Activities are included to promote active involvement on the part of the learner, in keeping with a transactional approach to learning. These guides may be used within any number of settings within the workplace, and provide a foundation for the development of guides which cover other health related topics.
