Summary

Under the UK Labour Government (1997-2001) there have been clear signs of a willingness to revive the 'pastoral' curriculum in schools and to develop stronger links between the health and education sectors. This book, based on empirical work undertaken in England and throughout Europe, explores such government policy and in particular the development of the health promoting school. The authors consider health promotion in a broad sense, incorporating into their analysis such issues as personal and social education, environmental education, self-esteem and empowerment.
