Summary
    Theories, Concepts, and Practice in Social and Behavioral Health provides students with a comprehensive and illuminating overview of key concepts in public health.

    The opening chapter explores examples of health interventions at different social-ecological levels, beginning in Babylon and working forward across ancient and medieval civilizations. Additional chapters introduce readers to the first modern psychologists, the concept of radical behaviorism, and internal and social forces that influence us. Students learn how we observe, learn, believe, and regulate behavior. They explore social and behavioral health concepts, including fear, control, sovereignty of self, irrational behavior, stress, social networks, social support, and more. Closing chapters address how to improve health in and through organizations, community health assessment and organization, and how to build a better world through improving social structures.

    Theories, Concepts, and Practice in Social and Behavioral Health is an ideal textbook for courses in health promotion, community health sciences, and public health.
