Identify and define one (or more) of the health behavior theories
Read the following case study:
Jason X is a 24 year-old male single professional working at his first job after graduating from college a year ago as a public accountant in a big city. He participated in intramural sports such as; basketball and volleyball, and regularly made it to the gym throughout college. He found it easy to participate because he lived close to campus and close to all his activities, and most of his friends were involved as well. Overall, he is healthy and does not have any chronic conditions that may keep him from exercising, but he has gained 10 lbs. since he started this new job. He is no longer working out at all, and he struggles with both falling staying asleep. He often attends happy hour with his new friends and has at least one or two craft beers most days of the week. His weekends consist of visiting new breweries or watching the big game with his friends.
His past medical history includes a severe ankle sprain that was a result of rolling his ankle during a basketball game. He recovered well, but limits jogging and heavy weight lifting due to chronic joint discomfort and minor swelling upon overexertion. There is a family history of mild hypertension and obesity.
He acknowledges he needs to get more active and wants to begin establishing lifestyle habits that will promote lifelong wellness. He has an “all or nothing” approach to his fitness and admits he is impatient and wants to see immediate results when he starts exercising again. He struggles with not being able to compete at his college fitness level. Currently, work is his priority, and most of his leisure activity is around socializing with friends who don’t place fitness as a high priority. In the past, he would hike and kayak with his college friends, but hasn’t seen those friends in a while and he admittedly misses those activities.
Identify and define one (or more) of the health behavior theories (Transtheoretical Model, Health Belief Model, Social Cognitive Theory, or Theory of Planned Behavior) to frame an approach to help Jason make positive changes.
Develop 5 “intervention activities” to assist Jason to have a healthy lifestyle. Identify the target behavior, theory, and theoretical construct you are using for each intervention activity. Be specific in your explanation and use the case information provided above in creating the intervention activities. You can pull from different theories, however be clear about the theory you are using. Be clear about the target behavior(s), 5 constructs and their associated theories, and your intervention activity.
In your written explanation, please number each intervention activity (1-5) and make each a separate section(see additional notes and example below). Responses should be up to 3 double-spaced pages with 12-point font and one inch margins. Please write in complete sentences. Check your spelling and grammar.
Attached is an example format for the template for organizing each intervention activity. Make that chart in your Word document.
