Relevance of Health Behavior Research

An Integration of Applications
  • David S. Gochman


This chapter integrates major points and findings presented in Volume IV. Although its contents reflect primarily the contributions to this volume rather than the larger body of scholarship about the relevance of health behavior research, the contents are nonetheless congruent with such knowledge. The nature of this volume precludes using the same matrix organizing structure underlying the integrations in Volumes I through III. It proved unwieldy to coordinate categories of health behaviors with personal, social, and institutional systems as levels of analysis for these applications.
