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.
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.
