"is a book that belongs on the desktop of every medial educator..." (The Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions
, April 2003)
Praise for Health Behavior and Health Education: Theory, Research, and Practice
"This book reflects with crystal clarity for students and practitioners the advances in theories and their application in health promotion and education since the previous edition, but also challenges the theorists and researchers to address the gaps that need to be filled before the next edition."
— Lawrence W. Green, visiting professor, Department of Behavioral Sciences and Health Education, Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University
"The third edition of Health Behavior and Health Education will be indispensable for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers working to translate research into practice. This volume charts new territory-from research design to application-and gives the field the lift and vision we've needed."
— C. Tracy Orleans, senior scientist, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
"Regardless of the practice site for health educators, and the nature of the practical problems they address in their daily work, the theoretically-driven orientation of this book is a major resource. After all, there is nothing more practical than a good theory-and this text is full of them!"
— Nancy Fugate Woods, dean, School of Nursing, University of Washington
