Integrating Social-Psychological Frameworks for Health Behavior Research.
Gebhardt, Winifred A.; Maes, Stan
American Journal of Health Behavior, v25 n6 p528-36 Nov-Dec 2001
Examines social-cognitive theories predominating in research on determinants of health behaviors. Although the theories predict health behaviors with some success, the social-cognitive perspective is restricted to a unidirectional, non-dynamic view of behavioral change, neglecting the fact that individuals may differ in life goals. The health behavior goal model may be a more integrated approach to health behavior research. (SM)
