BISAC: SCI090000

The theory of planned behavior (TPB) is one of the most widely applicable, and frequently utilized, models of human behavior. The TPB provides a theoretical framework for assessing potential determinants of behavior. Such information can then be used to guide the creation of targeted interventions.

This book provides insight on the theory of planned behavior and its application to the field of substance use; provides information on gender variations and TPB; fruit consumption determinants among young adults in Italy; discusses moderation of intense physical activity intentions; and provides a short-communication which discusses applying the TPB on school based interventions on children’s fruit and vegetable intake.
