Sessions

≪Organizer Abstract≫
This symposium brings together research from different areas of health behaviour change emphasising the role of good practice characteristics for interventions as well as focusing on both individual regulation and social factors in the context of different health behaviors (phyiscal activity, diet, HIV treatment adherence, and smoking).
The first contribution from Aleksandra Luszczynska opens the symposium with introducing good practice characteristics for the development, evaluation and implementation of interventions for health behaviors. In the second contribution John de Wit will focus on individual self-regulation in the context of HIV treatment adherence. In the last two presentations by Gertraud Stadler and Urte Scholz, the importance of social regulation in health behavior change will be highlighted: Stadler will focus on companionship and Scholz on social control. An integrative discussion by Ralf Schwarzer will complement the symposium.
