Learn how ethnic factors affect tobacco use The addiction to smoking is remarkably resistant to intervention, bringing with it a multitude of health issues among users that can at times co-occur with psychiatric disorders. Ethnicity is increasingly recognized as often playing an important role in the prevalence of tobacco use. Tobacco Use and Ethnicity explores the various factors that impact tobacco use among ethnic groups and provides practical, culturally competent approaches to treatment. Chapters consider multiple variables that lead to use among certain groups, such as Asian American and Pacific Island youth, American Indian and Alaskan Native youth, and low-income African Americans. Tobacco Use and Ethnicity is a unique source that comprehensively reveals the intersection between nicotine and culture, constructing culturally informed and culturally competent approaches to tobacco prevention and cessation treatment. This volume is based on first-hand participant observation and addresses risk and protective factors in a wide variety of populations served by public health workers and educators. The book is extensively referenced and includes figures and tables to clearly present research. Topics discussed in Tobacco Use and Ethnicity include: target marketing of a tobacco product to African-American youth how ethnicity and youth culture impact potential smokers the role of parental relationships the impact of peer and parental smoking status, employment, gender, and income in British Columbia the risk factor of acculturative stress on Asian American and Pacific Island youth protective factors of American Indian and Alaskan Native youth common factors associated between poverty and African American tobacco use and more! Tobacco Use and Ethnicity is an invaluable resource for public health professionals, addictions counselors, public health educators, and students.
