1- Guide to Marketing Social Norms for Health Promotion in Schools and Communities
: This guidebook is the first comprehensive, step-by-step manual designed especially for those who are interested in using the social norms approach to address school-age and community-wide issues.
 Inspired by the positive impact that a number of colleges and universities have had promoting student health using this approach, a number of high schools and communities have begun to implement their own social norms projects.
This guidebook is intended to provide both the theoretical and the practical information necessary to conduct an effective project. As such, it will be a valuable resource for anyone involved in such an effort—be they community members, school administrators and staff, or health promotion professionals.
The contents of this guidebook include:
