Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The identification of factors predicting health behaviors has become a major focus of research in health psychology and related disciplines, since increased understanding of the topic allows better targeting of potential interventions and health promotions. This collection of works explores social cognition models, examining how they have worked in the past and present (with examples of breast self-examinations, and condom use), how they may in the future, and the efficacy of self- regulation models, specifying the cognitive processes involved in the initiation, implementation, management and maintenance of health behavior.
