Health Behavior Change

Theories, Methods and Interventions

«

"With cutting-edge information and critiques of theories and techniques of behaviour change, and methods of collecting and analysing data, this important go-to book is for all those wanting to understand, practise or teach the science of changing behaviour, especially in relation to health."

Susan Michie, Professor of Health Psychology and Director of the Centre for Behaviour Change, UCL

"Prestwich, Kenworthy and Conner have given the field a delightful gift – a thorough and thoroughly accessible soup-to-nuts look at the complexity of health behavior change. Their volume gives the reader all of the important facets of the behavior change conundrum – how to measure and intervene on relevant constructs, where those constructs fit in both conventional and newer theories, and how to consider the many environmental and contextual factors that are often just as if not more influential. This volume is one-stop-shopping for the student or health professional who wants a contemporary summary of all there is to know about theories of and approaches to health behavior change."

William Klein, Associate Director of Behavioral Research, National Cancer Institute

"What changes behaviour? How good are internet-based interventions? Do worry and rumination change behaviour? How can we reduce risk of bias in an experimental study? What is the right sample size? How do I quickly find useful literatures? These are just a few of the myriad questions this timely, authoritative compendium addresses that should prove indispensable to students, teachers and researchers alike."

Professor Dame Theresa Marteau, Behavioural Scientist, University of Cambridge

"This book provides an excellent overview of various psychological constructs, mechanisms, and intervention approaches that can be used to modify health behaviors. The book covers a broad range of health promotion strategies and behavior change techniques, including those that leverage technology, environment, and health policy. The book is considered a cornerstone of information because it provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the field, making it essential reading for students and researchers alike. Novice researchers can benefit from the book's clear explanations and practical examples, while seasoned researchers can use it as a reference tool to stay abreast of the latest developments in the field.

By addressing a range of health promotion strategies and behavior change techniques, the book offers readers a broad understanding of how to modify health behaviors effectively. The inclusion of technology, environment, and health policy also highlights the importance of considering these factors when designing interventions.

Overall, the book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in understanding and modifying health behaviors. It provides a wealth of information on various approaches to behavior change and offers practical guidance on how to design and implement effective interventions."

Prof. Dr. Ralf Schwarzer, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany

"I highly recommend the 2nd edition of this book to students and researchers interested in the psychology of health behaviour change. The authors have done an excellent job in providing an overview of the various personal, social, cultural, environmental, policy, and technological factors that influence engagement in (or avoidance of) a variety of health behaviours. I particularly like the discussion of key questions in the form of "Burning Issue Boxes". These boxes, in conjunction with the emphasis on critical skills toolkits, the overview of a wide array of methodologies as well as analytical choices for health behaviour change data, should equip the readers of this book with important critical skills to evaluate the evidence underpinning the various theories outlined in the book. I also very much like the focus on contemporary issues, such as the replicability crisis and potential solutions, the impact of COVID-19 on health behaviours, and the interface between health behaviours and climate change. This second edition is a very valuable resource for anyone interested in health psychology and behavioural science."
