Building Better Health: A Handbook of Behavioral Change
[From the Preface]: The Handbook blends proven disease prevention practices and behavioral science principles into a one-of-a-kind, hands-on manual. Its pages spell out how to think about developing effective health promotion/disease prevention programs and how to carry them out so that they yield the best possible results. The book explores the causes of morbidity, disability, and premature mortality for each stage in the life cycle—from infancy to the elder years. The Handbook also looks at the protective and risk factors for each of the leading forms of death and disability, and recommends easily implemented, practical preventive interventions. Health professionals battling to “add years to life and life to years” will find Building Better Health: A Handbook of Behavioral Change an invaluable tool in their work. In addition, national, provincial, and local health authorities will find it useful in planning health promotion programs. We hope that it also will become a popular textbook for teaching and training new generations of health workers.
