Description - Promoting Human Wellness by Margaret Schneider Jamner

This text is a state-of-the-art educational resource on the latest developments in wellness programs and disease prevention. Based on award-winning lectures from the Wellness Foundation, the volume aims to widen the scope of health care research and policy to promote wellness rather than focus on illness and disease, and to incorporate proactive, interdisciplinary approaches to health care. Many of these article fall outside the scope of what we conventionally call health promotion, bringing new perspectives to research and policy possibilities. This book is organised around core themes such as the importance of disease prevention programs that address multiple health risks, the link between poverty and minority status and disease susceptibility, and the challenge of evaluating health benefits and cost-effectiveness. The articles discuss such timely issues as genetic determinism as a failing paradigm in wellness promotion, pregnancy prevention, racial differences in cancer epidemiology, the California smokers' helpline, strategies for reducing youth violence, HIV/AIDS prevention, and much more. Presented within the framework of social ecology, several of the chapters in this volume
