inspire their clients by modeling well-being in thought
and action. Moreover, they’re equipped with the
knowledge, tools, and self-awareness necessary to
catalyze their clients' well-being. They are midwives

Education for Well-Being
The Anthropedia Foundation educates on ways to become and stay healthy, positive, inspired, productive, and resilient, especially in the face of the stress and challenges of the 21st century.
Our team of educators, trainers, coaches, and multimedia specialists collaborate with experts in medicine, nutrition, psychiatry, psychology, and public health in order to provide health education tools and programs (curricula, questionnaires, workshops, courses, certification programs) for individuals and professionals seeking a sustainable approach to well-being.
We recognize that physical, mental, and spiritual health are connected, and are linked with the health of society and the ecology of the planet. Our courses are effective because they integrate current research on the health of the whole person (body, thoughts, and psyche), as well as ways to improve one’s personal environment and social conditions.
By “training the trainers” (teachers, counselors, health educators, social workers, and psychologists) and partnering with schools, hospitals, and other organizations, we impact communities, and empower individuals of all ages to find greater fulfillment and live happier, healthier lives.
Information from the Center for Well-Being, within the Department of Psychiatry at Washington University in St. Louis:
Center for Well-Being
The Center for Well-Being was founded to develop a coherent therapy for the treatment of mental health disorders. Unsatisfied with approaches that only incorporate certain facets of human personality (e.g. strict behavioral, biomedical, or psychosocial approaches), Dr. C. Robert Cloninger has spent the past twenty years developing an integrative biopsychosocial model of human personality. The Science of Well-Being examines the principles and mechanisms underlying the natural development of well-being in the individual. Based on research done is this field, the center’s goal is to develop innovative forms of therapy that health professionals can integrate into their practices.
The mission of the Center for Well-Being is to research and describe the principles governing the development of well-being, to develop innovative treatments based on this research, and to raise awareness of these principles and treatments in both professional and popular communities. To advance the goal of understanding and improving the state of mental health, the Center collaborates with practitioners worldwide.
