Additional Book Details
Emphasizing the importance of social context and cultural construction, Social and Behavioral Foundations of Public Health examines current issues in health from a social and behavioral sciences perspective. The book uses a social ecological framework to address multilevel influences on health and enlarge the dominant "risk factor" approach to health behavior. Editor Jeannine Coreil and contributing authors use examples from the forefront of public health to illustrate the relevance of "core"competencies" in the field to diverse real-world problems. The Second Edition has been thoroughly updated and revised throughout, based on user feedback, and includes new theory, research, case studies.
Social and Behavioral Foundations of Public Health is intended as a core textbook for graduate courses in public health and health care management that examine current issues in health from a social and behavioral sciences perspective.
