(as of Nov 28,2021 02:03:38 UTC – Details)
Health Promotion and Wellness provides students with a foundation in health promotion and wellness through authentic learning, collaboration, practice, knowledge, reflection, and mobilization across the eight dimensions of wellness.
At the beginning of each chapter, the text includes links to the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing’s seven areas of responsibilities, which define the skills needed for entry-level health education and health promotion professionals to thrive. Opening chapters provide an introduction to health promotion and the eight dimensions of wellness. Students learn about historical health and its influence on wellness, the new role of information technology in health and wellness, and theory and planning models in the discipline. Dedicated chapters examine ethics and professionalism, the role of the health education specialist, the improvement of health promotion through cultural competence, and various career venues related to health promotion and wellness.
Helpful appendices provide students with the Code of Ethics for the Health Education Profession Preamble and a review of the areas of responsibility, competencies, and sub-competencies for Health Education Specialist Practice Analysis II 2020 (HESPA II 2020).
