Dr. John Murphy, Western Connecticut State University

"If we are going to repair a fragmented society where many people feel that they do not have control of their lives, we must not concentrate on deficits, but on assets, skills and capacities. Health improvement isn't something you do to people; rather it is something you do with people. We need a positive view of well-being rather than a negative view of illness. People have assets and qualities within them that allow them to live healthy lives and make positive choices." Western Connecticut State University
