Health Psychology Behavioral Change Paper
You will be asked to choose a health related behavioral change that you would like to make in your own life. You will identify a specific change, set concrete goals, keep a log on your progress and identify barriers to change as well as factors that promote change. Your final product will also include a discussion of the psychological principals and evidence base associated with your change process, and what you learned about the process that could be relevant to medical settings. Follow APA guidelines and present your baseline, intervention, results for your target behavior(s) in the context of peer-reviewed research. You should have an introduction, methods section, results section, and discussion section.
I HAVE INCLUDED A BASIS OF MY INDIVIDUALIZED PROJECT BELOW. There must be obvious use of qualitative and quantitative data. My quantitative data is that in September I bought a tanning package and went tanning in a UV bed about 5 times a week. However, in November and December I did not buy a package and didn’t go tanning at all. My qualitative data would be the results in the change of my skin. I have many dark “sun spots” along my arms and face. However, I noticed after about 40 days without tanning that those sunspots faded and were lightening up.
