Reviews

"Anderson provides a much-needed, timely resource for the student affairs profession. As higher education professionals continue to serve students with increasingly complex and diverse personal life experiences, Wellness Issues for Higher Education offers a broad and practical approach to supporting student success."

--Frank E. Ross III, Vice President for Student Life, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

"This book should be on the `must read' list for not only every higher education counselor and health provider but also for every parent who sends a loved one off to college. This book provides a clear pathway to maintaining one's health and wellbeing during trying or difficult times."

--William Modzeleski, Former Associate Assistant Deputy Secretary, Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools, U.S. Department of Education

"This work addressed a myriad of college wellness topics that were categorized into five overarching areas: emotional, social, intellectual, physical, and spiritual. Grounded on the premise that academic performance, retention, satisfaction,
and quality of life will improve for students if wellness issues are better understood and addressed, this work comes at a time where college students in fall 2010 reported the 'lowest selfratings of emotional health since 1985' (p. 6)."

--Gerson Sanchez, Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice
