Abstract: This paper presents a variety of activities and exercises that promote the attributes of self-responsibility in client behavior through relaxation, breath therapy techniques, visualisation, meditation, affirmation and self scripting techniques to alter a clients health and sensory responses. The "wellness continuum" builds on the traditional medical model and shows three ways to exercise independent action and personal power based on self-responsibility.
