The second edition of Cultural Competence in Health Education and Health Promotion examines the importance of ethnic, cultural, and linguistic factors for community health practice. Written by a list of contributors who are experts in the field, this book describes essential theories, models, and practices for working with race, ethnicity, gender, and social issues. The authors cover a wide range of topics including demographics, disparities, complementary and alternative medicine, spiritually grounded approaches, multicultural populations, culturally competent needs assessment and planning, communication, workforce, program planning, aging, sexual orientation, and future challenges.

The new edition of this important resource offers expanded coverage on working with diverse groups, social determinants of health, spirituality, theoretical models for multicultural populations, planning and program evaluation, and aging, with new content which includes coverage of disability and health literacy. This edition also reflects the latest standards for Certified Health Education Specialist certification from the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc.
