Final project: personal behavior change plan


Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Final Project


Final Project: Personal Behavior Change Plan

For your Final Project, you are to develop a personal behavioral change plan.  After completing the assessments throughout the course, you should have a good idea of your wellness strengths and your weaknesses.  Choose one dimension that you would like to change.  Discuss each of the following areas in your plan presentation:

  1. Identify the wellness dimension you want to      improve.  Explain why you chose this dimension. In your response,      describe your previous assessments and examine at least three lifestyle      factors (diet, exercise, substance use, etc.) responsible for low      assessment results in the dimension of wellness you chose to improve. 
  2. Compare your current behaviors to the ideal behaviors      for each of the lifestyle factors that you identified. For example, if you      selected stress as a lifestyle factor that contributes to your low      assessment of emotional wellness, then compare your current stress-related      behaviors (fighting with family, eating sweets, watching TV, drinking      alcohol, etc.) to ideal stress management behaviors (appropriate      conflict-resolution, meditation, daily exercise, massage, deep breathing,      etc.).  Select a minimum of one current behavior and one ideal behavior      for each of the three lifestyle factors that you identified.   
  3. Describe the health risks and diseases associated with      your current behaviors.  Explain how your current behaviors would      lead to these negative consequences if left unchanged.   
  4. Review the transtheoretical model of behavior change in      Chapter 1 of your course textbook.  Explain this model and discuss      your readiness to change.  Include which stage of change you are in      currently and why you feel this way. 
  5. Imagine that you were ready to plan for change, and      identify three behaviors you could adopt to decrease your health risk and      improve your specified dimension of wellness.  Use the previous      information to help with your selection. 
  6. Refer to the development of SMART goals in your text      and develop three of your own SMART goals.  Be sure to include all      the parts of a SMART goal (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic,      and Trackable) for each goal set.  As you discuss these in your      assignment, explain your objectives and why you chose these goals. 
  7. Review the supplemental material on the social      cognitive theory, theory of planned behavior, health belief model, and      transtheoretical model.  Using these theories and models, discuss how      each one may be able to predict your success in making this change.       In your reply, explain the use of models and theories in health and      wellness. 
  8. Describe three barriers (one barrier per behavior      change) that may prevent you in making these changes. 
  9. Discuss one way to overcome each of your barriers. 
  10. Explain three motivational techniques that will help      you maintain your plan. 
  11. Finally, develop a wellness philosophy based on your      own values and beliefs and from what you have learned in this class. 

 Create a PowerPoint presentation with a minimum of ten slides (excluding title and reference slides).  Within the presentation, include detailed speaker notes for each slide.  Your behavioral change plan should use a minimum of six scholarly sources, cited in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
