Leading experts explore a wide range of topics, including the context of culture, cross-cultural perceptions of health, conceptual approaches to multicultural health promotion, health disparities, and the contributions of multicultural populations. Using the Cultural Assessment Framework (CAF), this proven handbook includes a focus on six specific populations (Hispanic/Latino, African American, American Indian and Alaska Native, Asian American, Pacific Islanders, and Arab Americans).The text concludes with a set of tips for working cross-culturally and a discussion about where the field is heading with respect to research and practice in the 21st century.
“I thought the text was well written and concepts clearly articulated.”
“Not only is it a great textbook for master and doctoral levels, it is a Handbook that practitioners can purchase after graduation to use for the rest of their careers.”
“I found myself referencing it for my own research a few times throughout the semester.”
“I believe the text does an outstanding job in presenting the many dimensions of health promotion in multicultural populations.”
valuable perspective to promoting health
Excellent resource for practitioners who work with diverse populations
There is some useful and interesting information in this book. However, its focus is the USA and as such many of the chapters are not relevant for the UK. This is a great shame as we need a book like this with a UK focus.
Useful content for general overall health promotion in multicultural society
Brilliant text for health promotion bringing in Multicultural populations and how this can actually affect health promotion campaigns. Altogether a well rounded text
I like the book but unexpectedly I'm not teaching the course any longer.
