It is during adolescence that many positive health behaviors are consolidated and important health risk behaviors are first evident; thus, adolescence is a logical time period for primary prevention. In addition, the predominant causes of morbidity and mortality in adolescence are quite different from those of adults, indicating that early identification and treatment of adolescent health problems must be directed to a unique set of targets in this age group. Moreover, because of the particular developmental issues that characterize adolescence, intervention efforts designed for adults are often inappropriate or ineffective in an adolescent population. Organized in five major sections General Issues, Developmental Issues, Treatment and Training, Mental Health, and Physical Health and 44 chapters, Handbook of Adolescent Health Psychology addresses the common and not so common health issues that tend to affect adolescents. About the authors William T.
Finally, and related to the previous point, a third difference concerns the availability of well-developed measures to assess the stress appraisal and coping processes each of the models propose.
Although the DCI reliably measures the various forms of positive and negative dyadic coping responses, well-developed measures of the stress appraisal processes proposed in the model have not yet been developed. Recent advances in research on communal coping have included newly developed and validated measures for assessing both shared appraisal and collaborative action; however, some of the measures are early in their development and will benefit from additional validation in future studies.
In this sample, the two items were moderately correlated for both patients and spouses, so the authors averaged them to form a communal coping score for each partner. Surprisingly, self-reported communal coping did not relate to patient health outcomes in this study.
The five-item scale is comprised of two items related to shared appraisal e. The authors averaged the items to form a communal coping score for each partner.
Although psychometric information for the scale is not available, partner communal coping scores were significantly associated with relationship well-being, providing some evidence of external validity.
Partners separately completed the two items at the end of each day for 14 consecutive days. The two items were significantly correlated for both patients and spouses, so the authors averaged them to form a daily communal coping score for each partner. Psychometric information for the scale, including within-person reliability estimates, is not yet available. Whereas the original IOS scale was comprised of seven concentric circles that overlap to various degrees and individual partners select the pair of circles that best represents their relationship from no overlap to complete overlap , the adapted version of the IOS asked partners to select the pair of circles that best represents how the couple has coped with the diabetes diagnosis also ranging from no overlap to complete overlap.
In this study, 60 couples in which one partner had congestive heart failure participated in a conjoint, coping-focused interview. To derive language measures, research assistants observed the video-recorded interviews and prepared verbatim transcripts of patient and spouse speech.
We-talk and I-talk scores were significantly inversely correlated for patients and marginally inversely correlated for spouses. Patient and spouse we-talk proportion scores were significantly correlated.
Somewhat surprisingly, however, partner we-talk scores were not significantly correlated with scores on the adapted IOS as a measure of communal coping. Observational Measures Helgeson and colleagues were the first to develop a global observational measure of communal coping in a sample of couples in which one partner had type 2 diabetes. Research assistants observed videotaped interaction tasks in which the couples discussed a diabetes-related stressor and rated communal coping behavior for each partner.
The measure includes a single, global item with a five-point scale ranging from 1 low communal coping to 5 high communal coping. The measure instructs observers to rate the extent to which the patient or spouse views the current stressor as a joint problem based on a careful review of the whole interaction.
The scale demonstrated excellent interrater reliability, with intraclass correlation coefficients ICCs ranging from 0. Partner observational communal coping scores were significantly correlated with scores on the five-item communal coping self-report scale and with we-talk during individual coping-focused interviews, providing evidence of external validity.
Recently, Rentscher and colleagues developed an expanded, four-item observational measure of communal coping designed to capture therapeutic change processes in a study of 56 couples participating in couple-focused interventions for health problems. The measure is comprised of four items that assess the shared appraisal dimension e. The scale demonstrated strong interrater reliability across the 1-min segments ICCs ranged from 0. Partner observational communal coping scores were significantly correlated with we-talk during the therapy sessions, providing evidence of external validity.
In a sample of couples coping with diabetes, Van Vleet and Helgeson investigated associations between the five-item communal coping scale and relationship functioning within an actor-partner interdependence model APIM. In a separate analysis with this sample, patient reports of communal coping were also significantly associated with diabetes self-care e.
Follow-up analyses revealed that active we-talk we vs. Finally, in a recent study of 70 couples coping with diabetes, spouse we-talk was associated with less patient psychological distress and greater diabetes self-care e. All FG and interviews were recorded in audio format, and subsequently verbatim transcribed. The data collection stopped when saturation of information was reached.
After each FG and individual interview, participants were asked to individually fill out a brief questionnaire that collected their socio-demographic information eg, sex, age, marital status, years of education and, in the case of immigrants, information on their time and legal status in Portugal please see questionnaire in Appendix.
Data analysis Qualitative data analysis was based on a grounded theory methodology, namely, on three different coding procedures: open, axial and selective Strauss and Corbin, All qualitative data collected in waves 1 and 2 was analyzed following the same methodological procedures. Indeed, data collection and data analysis were an iterative process, but for the sake of clarity they are sequentially described below.
Each axial category represents a specific type of relationship with the principal phenomenon, in this case, adherence to CPC recommendations. All data analysis was performed using the Atlas. A theoretical method, or behavior change technique, is a general technique or process for influencing changes in the determinants of behavior of the target population or of behavior of the environmental decision maker Bartholomew, et al.
Practical applications are specific techniques for practical use of theoretical methods in ways that fit the intervention population and the context in which the intervention will be conducted Bartholomew, et al. However, most of these taxonomies focus on individual behavior change and only a few also include behavior change of environmental agents Bartholomew, et al.
Environmental conditions are not likely to be under the direct control of the individuals at risk for the health problem. They are controlled by decision makers at different environmental levels, external agents such as peers, teachers, managers, and other gatekeepers Kok et al.
To select methods for environmental conditions, the first thing to do is to find out who may be in a position to make the expected change. The planner has to identify the desired behaviors for the agent who will actually change the environmental condition. The focus of this Synergy workshop is on methods for environmental change.
All participants will be asked in advance to bring in their research and practice experiences, discussion topics, and successes and failures with trying to change environmental conditions for health. Every half day in the workshop includes an introduction in the theme, a brief theoretical background, followed by contributions from participants: empirical research examples, practical experiences, theoretical ideas and discussion.
At the end of the workshop, a brief summary of the state of the art and the most promising venues for future research will be produced. We will update the price here as soon as possible, and will of course mail everybody who has already applied at that point.

Health Psychology Review, 6, Prominent among these planning interventions are implementation intention and action planning techniques.
These techniques aim to bolster or augment intentions with means to promote recall and enactment of the intended behaviour. There are numerous reasons why these techniques have attracted so much attention: 1 they are steeped in established social psychological theory, have been embedded in popular and well-cited theories of social cognition applied in health contexts such as the theory of planned behaviour, and address a commonly-known limitation of these theories i.
Above all, there is growing support for their effectiveness in engendering behaviour change health-related contexts as stand-alone intervention strategies or as part of more elaborate interventions involving multiple behaviour-change techniques.
However, while there is growing support for these planning interventions in the health-behaviour literature, a number of limitations in the research have been noted. For example, the meta-analytic findings indicate substantial heterogeniety in the effect. In other words, there is a lot of variation in the strength of the effects of planning interventions, implying that their effectiveness varies across studies.
