This text offers a comprehensive overview of new approaches to health–related behaviour from a self–regulation perspective. The authors outline the assumptions on which self–regulation theories are based, discuss recent research and draw out the implications for practice with a particular focus on changing health behaviour. The book is arranged in two sections Goal Setting and Goal Activation in Health Behaviour and Goal Striving and Goal Persistence. The epilogue compares self–regulation theories with the prevailing social–cognitive models.
