Incisively written, this new edition of a popular guide first published in 1996 slices through the rhetoric of health promotion. Its penetrating analysis quickly reveals health promotion’s conceptual roots, providing an enlightening map of their web of theory and practice. David Seedhouse proves that health promotion, a discipline intended to improve the health of a population, is prejudiced—every plan and every project stems first from human values—and argues that only by acknowledging this will a mature discipline emerge. To help speed progress the author proposes a positive, practical theory of health promotion destined to inspire anyone who wishes to create better health. This new edition includes three new chapters on conventional health promotion, radical and foundational health promotion and mental health promotion, providing examples of the use of foundational health promotion. This new edition also adds five new teaching exercises, incorporates and updates the guide for teachers and lecturers and includes a new topical case study. This book is laced with entertaining dialogues and readers are encouraged to explore ten carefully presented exercises. Educational, accessible and intelligent, Health Promotion: Philosophy, Prejudice and Practice, 2nd Edition is a seminal work which heralds the beginning of the end of health promotion’s long adolescence. It is nothing less than essential reading for all practitioners and students of health promotion.

Workplace Health Promotion - A salutogenic approach. A strategy for the future of business. When company performance and economic sustainability depends on peoples participation, wellbeing and health. Read about how workplace health promotion contributes to this with a salutogenic approach. "This book takes the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion one step further" Salutogenesis Antonovsky helped us to understand the logic of health promotion by means of the continuum model which describes human health as something dynamic with movement and direction. From a given point on the health continuum (the line between the twin poles of health and illness), different conditions or measures can act to improve the individual's health so that he or she is moved nearer towards the health pole. This state of health can be superior, both when measured in physiological terms and when considered subjectively in terms of the feeling of health experienced. What is there in people's way of life or in them as persons, which functions as a general factor of resistance to illness? What can be done not only to see that health is preserved but that it can even be improved? With the help of the idea of salutogenesis, this strategy can be developed into an approach of its own which clearly differs from both curative and preventive health work.

Health promotion has been a relatively overlooked area in modern medical and health professional vocational curricula.

This book takes a stimulatingly lateral view of the scope of the subject, goes a very long way to showing why it is essential to medical education, and gives good advice on how to support and develop both the subject and its tutors in today's medical schools.'

'In short, Lloyd and Lucas' approach is challenging in its emphasis on a 'positive' and holistic orientation to health and always humane in its emphasis on quality of life and, in the authors' words, 'the indivisibility of the individual from society' -Professor Keith Tones Health Promotion is a major focus of government policy and an expanding area of practice involving a range of public health professionals. At the same time, there is much debate about what is meant by "health" and the best strategies for improving, developing and promoting it. In light of these debates, Health Promotion offers a major reappraisal of health promotion activity, examining the evidence for what actually works and highlighting issues for improving efficacy. The field of health promotion has traditionally drawn from diverse fields including health psychology, epidemiology, political science and educational theory. The authors argue that the effect of this has often been an unhelpfully fragmented view of people and their health. They propose an alternative, more integrated view as means of better understanding people and for making public health strategies more effective. Health Promotion: Evidence and Experience makes thought-provoking reading for all those involved in public health and those with an interest in finding new ways to improve health outcomes.
