Each discussion of theory is accompanied by a practical skill building activity in the context of planning and evaluation along with a set of application questions. This activity will assist the student in mastering the application of this theory to community, school, work-site or patient care settings.Up-to-date examples of applications from current literature are included throughout the text and serve as ideas for designing interventions and resources for initiating literature review.There is a need for theory-based” programs in health education and health promotion.
