New edition of the Dutch handbook on health promotion published

Last week the new edition of 'Gezondheidsvoorlichting & Gedragsverandering; een planmatige aanpak' (health education and behavior change: a planned approach), i.e. the Dutch handbook ofn health education, was published. The book, edited by myself in collaboration with Prof. Lilian Lechner and Dr. Patricia van Assema, covers all steps of planned promotion of population health, from the epidemiological analyses, to behavior determinant analysis, to intervention mapping, intervention dissemination, and evaluation, and provides practical examples of health education interventions.
