Theoretical Application Assignment

I need support with this Health & Medical question so I can learn better.

The purpose of this assignment is to provide you with the opportunity to explore the role of theory and its practical application to life. We have discussed behavior change models from a theoretical perspective in lecture, and now this is your chance to apply not only the behavior change theory to your own life, but also to that of your family and/or community.

* More specifically, you will first provide an overview of the transtheoretical model of behavior change discussed in class.

* Second, you will apply this behavior change model to your personal life in regards to concepts discussed in class.

* Third, how would you apply these theoretical concepts to create behavior change with your family and/or your community/school.

* Adopt an organizational style that is comfortable for you, but please be sure to include

the following components:

1. An introductory paragraph describing the purpose of your paper and the direction you have chosen to pursue.

2. A minimum of 3 paragraphs applying the transtheoretical model to your personal life. Please be sure to define key variables and provide vivid examples to explain concepts and relationships of the constructs within the model. You may want to use one of the goals you have set as a starting point. How can you use theory to guide your practices in your personal life?

* So, for example, if your goal is to reduce the amount of stress you experience on a daily basis, based on the theoretical contentions, what could you do to create change in your daily stress?

*Try to be as detailed as possible about implementation of strategies. Be sure to provide at least 2 specific strategies that you will use during each phase of behavior change that you intend to implement. I encourage you to “think outside the box” and be creative about these strategies.

3. A minimum of 3 paragraphs applying the transtheoretical model to generate a change in behaviors for your family and/or your community/school.

* How can you use theory to implementation of sound interventions to facilitate healthy changes within your family/community/school?

* Try to be as detailed as possible about implementation of strategies. Be sure to provide at least 2 specific strategies that you will use during each phase of behavior change that you intend to implement. Get creative!

4. A summary paragraph that ties the paper together and brings closure.
