February 2000 | 384 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book is the first full-length in-depth treatment of settings as a focal point for planning, organizing and implementing health promotion. The concept of `setting' is fundamental to theory and practice in health promotion. Internationally renowned authors describe the state of the art in the theory and practice of health promotion in settings such as the home, school, workplace, community, and the state and offer insightful commentaries on each others work.
