© 2015 | 560 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Edited by Robert M. Huff, Michael V. Kline, and Darleen V. Peterson, the Third Edition of Health Promotion in Multicultural Populations offers both students and practitioners an indispensable resource on assessment and implementation guidelines for promoting health and enhancing behaviors that optimize health in any cultural community.

Leading experts explore a wide range of topics, including the context of culture, cross-cultural perceptions of health, conceptual approaches to multicultural health promotion, health disparities, and the contributions of multicultural populations. Using the Cultural Assessment Framework (CAF), this proven handbook includes a focus on six specific populations (Hispanic/Latino, African American, American Indian and Alaska Native, Asian American, Pacific Islanders, and Arab Americans).The text concludes with a set of tips for working cross-culturally and a discussion about where the field is heading with respect to research and practice in the 21st century.

Excellent resource for practitioners who work with diverse populations

There is some useful and interesting information in this book. However, its focus is the USA and as such many of the chapters are not relevant for the UK. This is a great shame as we need a book like this with a UK focus.

Useful content for general overall health promotion in multicultural society

I like the book but unexpectedly I'm not teaching the course any longer.

The book is written from an American perspective, but is proving useful to students and practitioners in a multicultural UK context

Very useful book which is used to support the teaching of health promotion at level 4.

A very useful book which I thoroughly found insightful. I work within a multicultural setting and has helped me shape some of the projects that I am currently dealing with. Again, I have made a recommendation to students.
