Health Promotion Practice (Second edition)

This revised edition explores community, social and individual determinants of health and illness.

Among the topics covered are influential theories of health-related behaviours and the process involved in shaping behaviour.

The book is divided into two sections, with the first providing practical guidance and tools to enable the reader to plan, implement and evaluate health promotion interventions.

Section two examines a comprehensive range of methods that can be used at different levels to target whole populations, smaller communities or individuals.

A new addition to the second part brings health promotion up to date through the inclusion of social media and web-based interventions.

Chapters provide illustrated case studies, with activities to enable the reader to apply knowledge and understanding.

This comprehensive textbook, packed with clear learning objectives and definitions of key terms, makes a useful contribution to health promotion practice.
