Section 2: Health Behavior Theories

Select four of the health behavior theories described in chapter 7 of our textbook. For each theory, provide a description of the theory and explain the major concepts associated with it. Categorize which level of the social-ecological model the theory is related to. Then, generate an example of how this theory could be used in creating an intervention. This example can come from the scholarly literature or you can create your own. Use the example provided as a guide. Use at least one scholarly resource, in addition to the course textbook, cited in APA style according to the Ashford Writing Center guidelines.

Example

Name of Theory: Stimulus Response Theory Description: The Stimulus Response (SR) Theory is based on the idea that behavior is shaped by the consequences of performing a behavior. It is sometimes referred to as “classical conditioning.” This theory uses the term “operant” to mean the behavior a person performs, and “stimulus” to mean the consequence that follows the behavior. Consequences can either reinforce (encourage) or punish (discourage) a behavior, and can be positive (adding something) or negative (taking something away).
Associated level of the Social Ecological Model: Intrapersonal/Individual
Example: An example of how this theory could be used in a health promotion intervention is if employees at a workplace were charged more for their health insurance if they continued to smoke. The operant behavior is smoking and the positive punishment would be the increased cost of health insurance.
