Abstract:
Determinants of Healthy Behaviors in Adolescents
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2002
Conference Date:July, 2002
Author:Hendricks, Constance, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:Southern University
Title:Chair
Objective: To develop a comprehensive health promotion empowerment model that can be used in the development of community based intervention programs to empower adolescents to refuse and resist participating in high risk behaviors. Design: A two phase research plan was used to refine, expand and test the Hendricks Perceptual Health Promotion Determinants Model. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: Over 400 Southern early, middle and late adolescents participated in a series of studies over a three year period. Concept or Variables Studied Together or Intervention and Outcome Variable: Behaviors done to stay healthy, Factors in making a choice to participate in high risk behavior were assessed using qualitative methods. Self-esteem, self-efficacy, hope, pubertal development were independent variables. Refusal and resistant skills and health promoting lifestyles were dependent variables. Methods:Focus groups (4) and individual interviews (18) were conducted. Over 400 questionnaires were completed by adolescents from a variety of settings across one Southern State. Findings: Adolescents identified habits they viewed as health promoting as well as those habits that should be avoided if one is to stay healthy. Several adolescent specific instruments were found not be as sensitive to the sample. Other instruments were developed and found to be good indicators of perceptions or behaviors as evidenced by Cronbach's alpha of 0.92 or better. Implications: Move to intervention testing using programs to strengthen aspect of adolescent's lifestyle choices and decision making capacity.
