Nagel, Liza; Scherer, David G.; Lee, William
American Journal of Health Behavior, v24 n3 p174-80 May-Jun 2000
Investigated middle and high school counselors' perceptions of adolescent health-compromising behaviors and motivations to intervene. Data from a survey based on protection motivation theory showed differences in counselors' perceptions of the severity of risk-taking behaviors. Perceptions were highly correlated with intentions to seek out professional training to intervene on behalf of adolescents engaging in health- compromising behaviors. (SM)
