Scriven, A. \ Hodgins, M. \ 2012

Health Promotion Settings combines the theoretical discourse of the settings approach, covering a wide range of fundamental principles, concepts and policy issues, with examples of settings, including workplaces, schools, neighbourhood, cities and prisons. Frameworks and processes that are shaping health promotion in settings in the 21st Century are documented and the ideas and research covered will provide a set of indicators for those who promote health in settings. Combining theory with practical examples and case studies, the authors show how a settings approach can work in practice, drawing on a range of local, national and international initiatives and coordinated projects.

Routledge international handbook of social and environmental change [Monograph]
Lockie, S. \ Sonnenfeld, D.A. \ 2014
social change - sociology - climatic change - environmental impact - risk - governance - ecology - environment - environmental policy - environmental sociology - Social change Environmental aspects - Social change - Global environmental change Social aspects - Climatic changes -

Today, the risks associated with global environmental change and the dangers of extreme climatic and geological events remind us of humanity’s dependence on favourable environmental conditions. Our relationships with the landscapes and ecologies that we are a part of, the plants and animals that we share them with, and the natural resources that we extract, lie at the heart of contemporary social and political debates. It is no longer possible to understand key social scientific concerns without at the same time also understanding contemporary patterns of ecosystem change. This book reviews the major ways in which social scientists are conceptualizing more integrated perspectives on society and nature, from the global to local levels. The chapters in this volume explore the challenges, contradictions and consequences of social–ecological change, along with the uncertainties and governance dilemmas they create. Themes in this book are: Climate change, energy, and adaptation; Urban environmental change and governance; Risk, uncertainty and social learning; (Re)assembling social-ecological systems.

social sciences - psychology - analytical methods - data analysis - literature reviews - Social sciences Research - Social sciences Statistical methods - Social sciences Research - Social sciences Statistical methods

The systematic review is a scientific tool that can help with the difficult task to tell the difference between real and assumed knowledge. It can help, for example, with appraising, summarising, and communicating the results and implications of otherwise unmanageable quantities of data. This book, written by two highly-respected social scientists, provides an overview of systematic literature review methods: •Outlining the rationale and methods of systematic reviews; •Giving worked examples from social science and other fields; •Applying the practice to all social science disciplines; •It requires no previous knowledge, but takes the reader through the process stage by stage; •Drawing on examples from such diverse fields as psychology, criminology, education, transport, social welfare, public health, and housing and urban policy, among others. •Including detailed sections on assessing the quality of both quantitative, and qualitative research; searching for evidence in the social sciences; meta-analytic and other methods of evidence synthesis; publication bias; heterogeneity; and approaches to dissemination.
