Abstract:
It is widely accepted that health is influenced by one's behavior and lifestyle. The development of health attitudes and behaviors begins at an early age. During childhood the individual develops self-perceptions, health beliefs, a sense of control over health, and health behaviors. In an effort to incorporate each client's individual differences into a systematic and comprehensive structure which examines the multiple determinants of health behaviors, the Interaction Model of Client Health Behavior (IMCHB) was developed by Cox (1982). The IMCHB incorporates an extensive set of variables that address psychological, sociological, and environmental determinants of health behavior, as well as short-term behavioral determinants that arise during the client-professional interaction. The purpose of this study is to identify those variables that influence the school-age child's enactment of diet and physical activity. The research question to be addressed is: What elements of client singularity (uniqueness) are related to the diet and physical activity of the school-age child? A sample of 10-11 year-olds and their parents will participate in the study. Information on the family's demographics, previous health experience, social influence and environmental resources will be collected. Data on the children's intrinsic motivation, cognitive appraisal, and affective response to food/physical activity will be gathered. Finally, the children's self-reports on diet and physical activity will be collected. Descriptive analysis will be completed on the total sample, and the relationships proposed in the IMCHB will be systematically explored within the data set obtained. Bivariate correlations between the independent variables and the dependent measures will be examined. Analysis of variance will be conducted to determine any response variation for the measures of intrinsic motivation, cognitive appraisal, and affective response on the grouping variable of gender. In keeping with the proposed structure of the IMCHB, the client singularity variables (intrinsic motivation, cognitive appraisal, and affective response) will be regressed on the background variables (demographic, social influence, health experience, and environmental resources), and on one another. The final model will display the effect of all study variables on the school-age child's diet and physical activity. Source: Cox, C. L. (1982).
