Influencing Behavior Through Instruction: Methodology in Health Education.
Golaszewski, Thomas J.
A health education curriculum for secondary school and undergraduate college students is described. The prime emphasis in this curriculum is upon behavior modification and personal motivation on the part of the student. Strategies for modifying health behavior are outlined stressing the importance of students understanding and clarifying their personal values and goals. Working with the teacher, students develop a health program of their own after participation in basic medical laboratory experience that provides an understanding of their physical condition and needs. Both biomedical evaluation and behavioral inventory analysis are used in this instructional phase. A sample of a student-developed program is appended. (JD)
