Models and theories such as the Health Belief Model,
Cognitive/Information Processing, the Theory of Reasoned
Action, Social Cognitive (Learning) Theory,Social Support
Theories, Behavior Modiﬁcation, and Kanfer’s Parallel
Self-Management Model guide much of current health-promotion reF search and practice. The
Transtheoretical or “Stages of Change” Model presents a cognitive-behavioral
change process not grounded in a speciic health behavior theory.
Green (1984) provides a very general review of health behavior modification.
Stokols (1992) presents a theory around healthy environments.
