'This text provides a comprehensive overview of current thinking on the theory and practice of a settings approach to health promotion. This book will be a valuable resource for practitioners and students of health promotion and public health' - Margaret Barry, Professor of Health Promotion and Public Health, National University of Ireland Galway
A well researched and interesting text that provides a comprehensive overview of the settings approach in health promotion. Different methods and models of working are explored through case studies. In my view the book is well structured and logically sequenced with clearly defined chapters and sub headings.
Gives an excellent insight into health promotion.
A helpful well laid out book with some good current examples
Rare to find a text devoted to this topic but this will be very welcome by health promotion educators as research in this area is paltry also. Good coverage of basic concepts and practicalities highlighted by reference to a predictable range of 'settings'.
Clearly defined chapters and sub headings. Boxed aims with each chapter to hopefuly achieve by the end. Each chapter referenced so good if you just want to pick one topic and read that chapter and further research. Summary points given too. No activity boxes but chapters can used within lectures for discussion points/ group work.
A lot of writing squeezed in
A wide variety of public settings used and supported with theory, scenarios and examples that the student or public health worker can understand, adapt and utilise.
A great book full of interesting and applicable information for our Health Studies Units. I have asked our Library to purchase some copies for the learners.
Useful text which covers a range of theories related to the subject. Can be used to underpin assignment work
An excellent textbook for students on health promotion modules giving a complete overview of the settings approach and encouraging different ways of working. Very relevant for learning of all PH students, home and international.
A highly informative book which is logically sequenced and breaks down health promotion to a wide range of settings. A valuable read.
