OET Listening Bits 14
What does the term “holistic well-being” mean in the context of community health?
A) The well-being of the whole community, not just individuals or groups.
B) The well-being of the physical, mental, and social aspects of health.
C) The well-being of the human and non-human components of the environment.
The correct answer is B.
Holistic well-being means taking into account the biomedical imperatives as well as the psychosocial dimensions of health, as stated in the last sentence of the paragraph. Option A is incorrect because it does not capture the integrative approach that holistic well-being entails. Option C is incorrect because it confuses holistic well-being with ecological well-being, which is a different concept.
