The term "health promotion" has come to refer to a movement which has been gathering momentum in the 1980s. The movement is a radical one which challenges the idea that health is just a "medical" issue, stresses its social and economic aspects and portrays health as having a central place in a flourishing human life. This interdisciplinary book provides an overall view of the health promotion movement, a justification of its aims, a value base for its practical activities and an account of its links with related fields of health care. The diverse academic backgrounds of the authors have contributed to this wide-ranging analysis. The book will be of value in the preparation and development of professionals in the many areas which are involved in health promotion, such as medicine, nursing, other health professions, social work, school and community education and community development.
