Hacia una definición holística del Bienestar: Integrando conceptualizaciones desde la sociología, la psicología y la economía.

Jesús Unanue Manríquez, Wenceslao Unanue Manríquez

Resumen


La investigación científica ha demostrado por más de 50 años, los beneficios de la felicidad y el bienestar para los individuos, las organizaciones, sociedades y el planeta. Sin embargo, actualmente existentes diferencias significativas en la conceptualización y medición del bienestar. Por ejemplo, mientras la sociología se focaliza mayoritariamente en aspectos globales y en las condiciones sociales que afectan el bienestar de las personas, la psicología se centra fuertemente en aspectos individuales, y la economía en aspectos materiales y de ingresos. El
principal objetivo de este artículo es discutir la importancia de integrar diferentes perspectivas existentes sobre bienestar. Avanzar en una concepción más holística del bienestar, permitirá ampliar y mejorar la calidad de las políticas públicas que permitan utilizar este indicador para mejorar la calidad de vida de la población. Importantes implicancias teóricas y prácticas desarrollan este artículo, especialmente centrado en el ámbito educación y el llamado “Proyecto
Aula Segura”.
