The biblical-wellness (B-Well) model was created to attend to the current clinical and educational “gap” in the fields of professional mental health services, pastoral counseling, and medical services, providing a coherent, integrated case conceptualization model that joins wellness and a Christian worldview. The presenters will describe a wellness model based on Myers, Leucht, and Sweeney’s (2004) 4F-Welmodel reorienting the 4F model’s terms from a secular worldview to a biblical worldview based on the Great Commandment. The B-Well model recognizes that “wellness is on a continuum and takes a wholistic view of the client.” Applying the six facets of the B-Well model with the mental health professional’s theoretical orientation allows the participant to examine the concerns in the Mind, Heart, Strength, Soul, Neighbor, and Society facets of the client’s life. The B-Well model also takes from the philosophy of wellness and looks at the assets and strengths of the client when conducting a case conceptualization.
