Discussion: Applying the Theories of Reasoned Action/Planned Behavior and the Transtheoretical Model to Health Challenges
The Theory of Reasoned Action/Planned Behavior is based on the principle that oneâ€™s â€œintentionâ€ to perform a behavior is the key, rather than as previously thought, that oneâ€™s attitude alone toward the behavior is the driving force. The Transtheoretical Model, which is classified as a theory, is based on the concept that behavior change is a process that occurs in specific stages, irrespective of the behavior.
In this Discussion you will explore the application of the Transtheoretical Model to better understand the health literacy of inner-city families and their purchase of fruits and vegetables at convenience stores.
- Consider what resources are available to inner-city families. What access might they have to fresh fruits and vegetables?
- Consider how the Transtheoretical Model might apply to these inner-city families and their access to fresh fruits and vegetables.
By Day 5 of Week 4
Post an explanation of why someone might use the Transtheoretical Model to better understand health literacy of inner-city families regarding the purchase of fruits and vegetables at a convenience store.
