Week 8 – Assignment: Signature Assignment: Plan Life Improvement Project
Assignment Task: Submit to complete this assignment
Due November 19 at 11:59 PM
Part I: Using the information you learned in the last seven weeks, identify three areas to make improvements in your current lifestyle choices. Write about the three areas with insights such as why you consider them important for your health, how you strayed from a path of health, and other information from the course to demonstrate your understanding of the area and your motivation. Please include a persuasive argument (for yourself) about why it is important to address this area at this time. Tailor the information in the plan to your understanding of the area based on the course resources (readings, videos, websites, articles).
Part II: Using information you learned about behavioral interventions and health psychology in practice, please write about a plan for yourself (or a friend). Write about whether you think the plans will be difficult, and build in strategies to stay motivated—or even develop a Plan B if needed. Tailor the information in the plan to your understanding of the area’s treatment based on the course resources (readings, videos, websites, articles). Finally, focus on one of the three areas and treatment plans that might have appeal to others as well. Think about which of the areas/plans you would be most comfortable sharing about with another in a helping setting and provide insight on whether or not you think the information could be helpful to others.
Please include five scholarly resources in the paper. Use in-text citations for the resources in the paper and then include a reference page at the end of the assignment.
Length: 10-12 pages
