The 8 dimensions of wellness is a framework that inspires and guides our conversation to reform culture and climate. The 8 Dimensions of Wellness include: occupational, emotional, spiritual, environmental, financial, physical, social, and intellectual. Each dimension is interconnected and equally vital in the pursuit of optimum health. Everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. ReForum Consulting work is also grounded in Social Emotional Learning (SEL). SEL is the process through which individuals develop the skills necessary to recognize and manage emotions, build relationships, solve interpersonal problems, and make effective and ethical decisions.
