The Theory of Reasoned Action/Planned Behavior is based on the principle that one’s “intention” to perform a behavior is the key, rather than as previously thought, that one’s attitude alone toward the behavior is the driving force. The Transtheoretical Model, which is classified as a theory, is based on the concept that behavior change is a process that occurs in specific stages, irrespective of the behavior.

In this Discussion you will explore the application of the Transtheoretical Model to better understand the health literacy of inner-city families and their purchase of fruits and vegetables at convenience stores.

Note: This Discussion will span the full 2 weeks of this module, with your final participation culminating on Day 7 of Week 5 in the second week of the module.

To prepare:

Consider what resources are available to inner-city families and what access might they have to fresh fruits and vegetables. Then consider how the Transtheoretical Model might apply to these inner-city families and their access to fresh fruits and vegetables.

my topic focus is Violence prevention/domestic violence
