Settings for Health Promotion: Linking Theory and Practice
Settings for health promotion is the first full-length in-depth treatment of settings as a focal point for planning, implementing, and evaluating health promotion. The concept of ‘setting’ is fundamental to theory and practice in health promotion. Settings also frame the context within which health is influenced, so that the setting itself becomes a target of intervention. Internationally renowned authors from the United States, Canada, Europe, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand describe the state of the art in the theory and practice of health promotion as they analyze programs for their efficiency within specific settings. Following each chapter, two professionals comment upon the program from differing perspectives. Case studies provide practical applications throughout the book.
