Description
Substantially revised to reflect current trends in the field of health behavior change, this new edition of the highly acclaimed ""gold standard"" text continues to provide a comprehensive overview of behavior change as it relates to public health. It has been extensively reorganized to eliminate redundancies in the earlier edition, and takes a broader, more pragmatic approach in its coverage of health behavior change.
This multidisciplinary text has been authored and edited by highly esteemed practitioners, educators, and researchers who are experts in their specific areas of study.

Each chapter explains the significance of a particular problem and reviews the empirical evidence for the various intervention approaches.
