Four focus groups with 12 students indicated three themes on the topic of wellness: (a) wellness was an important, complex construct unique to the individual, (b) wellness as an “opening of the eyes” through awareness, translation, and integration, and (c) emerging counselors’ recommendations. Implications for training and research are discussed.
