Reviews

"This text presents an opportunity for a cleaver reappraisal of the imperative to improve and the health outcomes of the next generations ..." (Australian and New Zealand of Public Health, August-Sept 2007) "Should be on the bookshelf of every researcher, practitioner, and advocate striving to reduce the public health burden of injury and violence. This well-written, comprehensive, and compelling book has a great deal to teach students and professionals about the theories underpinning the design, implementation, and evaluation of behavioral change strategies."-- American Journal of Preventive Medicine "This book would be an excellent resource for classroom teaching. The authors have provided thought-provoking examples of 'real-life' interventions. The book would be useful not only in a topical class on the issue of injury and violence but also in classes focused on behavior change theories and theory-based intervention development. I found new and innovative examples of interventions that I will use in classroom teaching. I would recommend this book to public health professionals and to teachers working with students of public health, health education, nursing and medicine. The clarity of the writing and the excellent examples make this book appropriate for both graduate- and undergraduate-level students" -- Health Education Research "The cohesive textbook Injury and Violence Prevention: Behavioral Science Theories, Methods, and Applications offers the reader a solid foundation for the involvement of psychology in the field."-- Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books "I highly recommend this book. It sets a new standard for the next generation of injury and violence prevention programs."-- American Journal of Health Behavior
