"The Guide’s major strengths are its breadth and depth with reviews of the literature, case studies, empirical findings, historical reflections, and future guidance. Scientists working on any subfield can now see how their work informs other fields and ideas for interdisciplinary projects." (PsycCRITIQUES, March 2015) "I would recommend this book for acquisition. Each volume has its own ISBN and there are volume indexes, rather than a master index, so specialist libraries could purchase individual volumes. The different volumes hang together well however, so I would recommend getting the set if possible. This set has arrived on the crest of a wave of academic and, to a lesser extent, public interest. Academic libraries catering for courses in psychology, health-related subjects, education, social policy or economics will all find useful material here." (Reference Reviews, 2014) “This series could complement a variety of libraries, such as a home or personal library, office, or academic setting. Wellbeing is a global topic that influences each individual. This series is a valuable resource.” (American Reference Books Annual, 1 June 2014)

Wellbeing: A Complete Reference Guide is the first multi-volume, interdisciplinary exploration of the topic of wellbeing. The notion of wellbeing has grown in importance and prominence across the globe in recent years and this reference work provides an in-depth examination of the characteristics that enable individuals and organizations to thrive and flourish. Under the direction of noted academic Cary Cooper, and edited by a distinguished group of senior scholars from a variety of disciplines, this project looks at wellbeing from multiple perspectives, including children and families; the workplace; the environment; later life; economics; and interventions and public policy. Spanning the behavioral and social sciences and encompassing the latest research, this is an essential reference for scholars, students, professionals, and policymakers who want to enhance and promote human wellbeing. Interventions and Policies to Enhance Wellbeing, the sixth volume, looks at the most successful existing strategies to promote wellbeing and mental health. It examines the latest research in the science of wellbeing and discusses the practical implications for improved learning, creativity, productivity, relationships, and health. The first two sections cover interventions for individuals across the lifespan, as well as those for organizations and communities. The final section looks specifically at policy initiatives and approaches, with a focus on the integration of new technology and the role of the media. In this multidisciplinary volume, a cadre of global scholars considers a wealth of new research and outlines the potential impact on future policy and the wellbeing of society at large.
