About the Author

Ruth Cross is a nurse by profession with 10 years nursing experience in acute and emergency medicine and HIV/AIDS. She has a BSc in Psychology, an MSc in Health Education and Health Promotion, Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education and a PhD in the social construction of risk in health by young women and the implications of this for health promotion policy and practice. She has lived and worked in Sub-Saharan Africa and maintains an interest in the health issues of that region, working as course leader for the MSc Public Health Promotion course in both Zambia and Ghana. She is involved in numerous research projects within the Centre for Health Promotion Research including the Young Women's Risk and Resilience Evaluation and the Sustainable Sunderland Evaluation. Her research interests include qualitative methods of investigation and the relationship between theory and practice. Her teaching interests are varied; she co-leads on the Health Communication module, contributes to the Research and Professional Practice modules and supervises master's students' dissertations. She contributes to many other undergraduate and postgraduate programmes including physiotherapy, dietetics, occupational therapy and childhood studies. James Woodall is a Senior Lecturer and the Co-Director of the Centre for Health Promotion Research. He is also the Course Leader for the MSc Public Health - Health Promotion programme (UK course). His research interest is offender health, particularly health promotion in prison settings. He completed his PhD in 2010, which examined the health promoting prison and how values central to the health promotion discourse are applied to the context of imprisonment. He has since published a number of peer-reviewed articles based on his PhD. He has also published work on young offenders and mental health, the role of prison visitors' centres for supporting prisoners' families and research exploring prisoners' lay views on health. He continues to focus his research attention on the health of the prison population. As Co-Director of the Centre for Health Promotion Research, he is also involved in broader health promotion research projects such as oral health promotion and men's health research. He currently teaches on the MSc Public Health - Health Promotion programme and contributes to other undergraduate and postgraduate areas in the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences.


This essential text covers all the fundamental elements needed for any student undertaking a health promotion degree. It will no doubt become a required resource for our health promotion teaching.

A wonderfully rich and accessible textbook on the key aspects of health promotion. Green, Tones, Cross and Woodall should be commended for their impressive contribution to the art and science of health promotion in contemporary society.
