Jillian Davis Professor Chatkoff Health Psychology November 25, 2014 Behavior Change Project: Theoretical Analysis This behavior change project has become a huge part of my everyday life. I lost sight of how important staying in shape affects my overall mental state along with my physical well-being. Having a life that consists of so many activities such as going to school, working, and maintaining a full and happy relationship with the people I care about is hard to balance with just making time for myself. That is why keeping this three day a week workout regime over the past five weeks has been so important; it made me realize that I can make time to focus on just working on myself, and in turn, improve all other aspects of my life. Realizing of course that there are many people in this world that have real life health problems that they seek professional help for. These changes in their lives require a system or a theory that must be applied to develop a strategic an organized way to regulate or change their behavior.

While behavior change isn't easy, it can be made more manageable through the use of effective time management and scheduling. I have a bad habit in the form of procrastination, and I tended to procrastinate and postpone a lot of things in my life, including the activities I undertook for my behavior change project. By taking part in this project, I have learned that in order to accomplish my goals and fulfill my obligations, I need to set times aside for doing my different activities. By applying this attitude to both the project and other aspects in my life, I have managed to mitigate my procrastination and accomplish my objectives in a timelier
The barriers to health behavioural change are addictions, mental health, lifestyle, existing behaviour, ie not willing to change, peer pressure and a lack of support from peers make changing behaviour all the more difficult.

How we teach is just as important as what we teach. This is especially true when training staff to perform on the job. Due to the important role of our direct care staff it is crucial to implement training procedures that are scientific and evidence-based. Based on the following literature
There are three different styles of recovery initiations according to White and Kurtz (2006). These three styles include quantum (transformational change), conscious incremental change (stage dependent process of change), and drift (gradual reduction of usage). An addict at any point can experience any of these or all three in time. Since addiction can arise from multiple different contextual issues, such as cultural, personal, or familial, recovery experiences can become just as unique (White & Kurtz, 2006). Despite the lack of literature supporting the stages of change model deriving from the conscious incremental change style of recovery (West, 2005), it is still one of the most popular styles studied and used among researchers and clinicians
Target Behavior: I am completing this behavior change project on myself. I had to think long and hard about what habit I would like to change. I must say, at first, I actually did not have a personal problem with this behavior I chose to modify. After carefully examining my bank and credit card statements in November, I had noticed that I was spending hundreds of dollars per month on takeout.
My overall experience with the behavior change project was positive, as I was able to successfully change my sleeping habits. Although there were times when sticking to my behavior change plan was extremely difficult, I was able to stay on track and change my sleeping habits. As a result of my behavior change, I now feel healthier and less fatigued. Because of these physical improvements, important areas of my life, such as school and sports, have improved also. My performance in the classroom and on the basketball court has noticeably become better after making this behavior change.

I really liked reading your post; Social workers have to think about the well being of the children as well as the families. Rural areas are different then urban areas. In the urban areas there are a lot of people who have other resources that they can use if they don’t think the policies of an agency, in a rural area that may not be provided therefore a social worker has to realize the potential problems. By upsetting someone in a rural area you could possible be upsetting so one that you will need in the future. I really like the behavior intervention method. I think that it provides good result and should be implementing in agency’s all thought the country. Creating program to help with this problem can increase the chances offing the behavioral

My behavior change was to go to the Colvin more. When I made this choice, I thought it would go quite well for me, considering I lived near the Colvin and I considered my class schedule to be fairly spaced out. My goals were simple: go to the Colvin a certain amount of time by a certain date, and go to a certain amount of dance (Tango) classes by a certain date. My rewards for completing those goals seemed to be enough to motivate me. I was confident that I would be able to complete this behavior change and feel better about myself and my personal health.
Part A One of Carol’s negative behaviors is her constant talking out of turn. Since Carol continues the behavior despite being repeatedly corrected, I feel it is very possible that she is talking out of turn as a way to receive attention. This behavior can be explained by Dreikurs’ behavioral goals which states that most misbehavior is for attention (“Reasons for Student,” 2003). The students who strive for attention will do just about anything to receive it, without regard to what behavior is acceptable (“Reasons for Student,” 2003). Since Carol continues the behavior despite knowing it is unacceptable, she is falling in line with this point.
