Foundations of health behavior research revisited



Foundations of health behavior research revisited



American Journal of Health Behavior 29(6): 489-496



This paper revisits the issue of assumptions behind the field of health behavior research. The understanding of constituents of health behaviors and what constitutes health, reasons for placing a value on health, the utility of health behavior research, and the role of the health behavior researcher are reviewed. Conscientiousness and dialectic theory are employed as concepts to provide one potential conceptual solution to participation in self-destructive behaviors.
