In health promotion, easy access to good information is often hard to achieve. Understanding Health Promotion, whilst grounded solidly in theory, draws on the research undertaken by the authors to focus on practice. 'Guidebooks' containing expert summaries and practical information areintegrated throughout to help students expore the resources which are available to support the work of health promotion practitioners. Written for students, the textbook follows a logical 3-part structure and is rich in pedagogy, containing key take-home messages, case studies, exercises, key terms, useful websites, further reading and summaries. Part 1 lays the foundations for understanding health promotion and in particular,the implications of the social determinants of health. Part 2 covers the key practice skills for health promotion. Part 3 describes actions that promote health from different sectors or parts of our society. The combination of theory, research and 'real world' practical application makes this book an essential learning tool for students.
