While other texts focus on the most commonly-used theories in health promotion and health education, Theory in Health Promotion Research and Practice: Thinking Outside the Box goes beyond; it guides the reader to reflect on the process of thinking theoretically and offers additional tools to facilitate the theoretical thinking process. Numerous examples of concepts, strategies, and procedures are woven throughout along with charts, diagrams, and graphs to help visualize abstract concepts and relationships. The text is also interspersed with segments containing the authorrs"s personal reflections on the complexities inherent in the practice of theory, which serve to bring the material to life in an engaging way.
