With its unique applied approach to learning theoretical constructs, INTRODUCTION TO HEALTH BEHAVIORS changes the way you think and behave in relationship to planning health promotion programs. This text introduces theory as a foundation of deep factual knowledge that is then synthesized and built upon in ways that help you understand the relationships between behaviors and health, antecedents and behaviors, and interventions and antecedents.
