Overview

The book is a guide and resource for public health practitioners seeking a single, concise summary of health behavior theories that was neither overwhelming nor superficial. As a government publication in the public domain, it also provided cash-strapped health departments with access to a seminal integration of scholarly work that was useful to program staff, interns, and directors alike. Although they were not the primary target audience, members of the public health research community also utilized Theory at a Glance, both as a quick desk reference and as a primer for their students.

This book describes influential theories of health-related behaviors, processes of shaping behavior, and the effects of community and environmental factors on behavior.
