Social & Behavioural

1.Think about what could make an individual regress in the Stages of Change. For example, it typically takes numerous attempts for one to successfully quit tobacco, and it isn’t entirely due to the
nicotine addition. 2.Think about some of the reasons and think about how you would design a program to support an individual going through these stages. From the video which stage do you think is
the most challenging. Why? Can you think of a health behavior change in which one would not go through the stages of change as described in the Transtheoretical Model? Why wouldn’t someone go
through the stages when changing that behavior? After reading the Male involvement in family planning program in Northern Ethiopia:An application of the Transtheoretical model. How would you go
about designing an intervention based on the Precaution Adoption Process Model to change this behavior? What would your message be? Why are applications of the PAPM easier to use for single,
dichotomous health behaviors (such as obtaining a vaccination) than for habitual or repeated behaviors (such as sun protection or eating a low-fat diet)? What special considerations are involved
when applying the PAPM to the more complex or habitual behaviors? [support your statements with appropriate references ]
