Eliminating Alcohol Intake PPT Assignment
Apply the 5 or 6 stages of change (i.e., precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, maintenance, and, if applicable) to your health behavior.
Describe the processes of change that enable each stage change (i.e., consciousness raising, dramatic relief, environmental reevaluation, self-liberation, self-reevaluation, helping relationships, counterconditioning, reinforcement management, and stimulus control). Please refer to page 132, Table 7.2 for the Processes of Change That Facilitate Progression Between Stages of Change.
Since this is an essential portion of the course material, these presentations must be clear and professional. Apply the transtheoretical model.
Ensure accuracy and completeness of the information, application of a model, evaluation and original insight.
You are required to use the voice and video options (so we can hear AND see you). Upload you presentation into the discussion thread in week three.
The presentation should include:
Title slide (with your name) (SLIDE 1)
Briefly define the health behavior (SLIDE 2)
Briefly explain the public health significance of the behavior (i.e. provide statistics on the prevalence of the behavior, the population most at risk, etc.) (SLIDE 3)
List at least two risk factors leading to the behavior (SLIDE 4)
A risk factor is any attribute, characteristic or exposure of an individual that increases the likelihood of developing a disease or injury. Some examples of the more important risk factors are underweight, unsafe sex, high blood pressure, tobacco and alcohol consumption, and unsafe water, sanitation and hygiene (WHO, 2015).
Indicate at least two health consequences/effects/impacts of the behavior (SLIDE 5)
Health effects (or health impacts) are changes in health resulting from exposure to a source. For example, several health consequences of smoking include heart disease, stroke, lung cancer. See the following link for additional information:
Describe methods for modifying the behavior (SLIDE 8)
Professional References (look for websites with .gov, .edu, or use the textbook, or peer reviewed journal articles) (SLIDE 9)
