This title combines a detailed introduction to transdisciplinary methods with a description of how to apply these methods to problem-solving in public health research and practice. Edited by leaders in the application of transdisciplinary methods, this book provides graduate public health students with a foundation for collaborative thinking to guide problem identification, solutions, and analysis. Practical application of transdisciplinary concepts are presented across numerous case studies, as well as evaluation of these approaches, giving future practitioners a toolset for promoting long-term solutions to complex human health problems.
