Towards an integration of the theory of planned behaviour and cognitive behavioural strategies : an example from a school-based injury prevention programme
Buckley, Lisa, Sheehan, Mary C., Shochet, Ian M., & Chapman, Rebekah L. (2012) Towards an integration of the theory of planned behaviour and cognitive behavioural strategies : an example from a school-based injury prevention programme. Educational Studies.
Adolescent risk-taking behavior has potentially serious injury consequences and school-based behavior change programs provide potential for reducing such harm. A well-designed program is likely to be theory-based and ecologically valid however it is rare that the operationalisation process of theories is described. The aim of this paper is to outline how the Theory of Planned Behavior and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy informed intervention design in a school setting. Teacher interviews provided insights into strategies that might be implemented within the curriculum and provided detail used to operationalise theory constructs. Benefits and challenges in applying both theories are described with examples from an injury prevention program, Skills for Preventing Injury in Youth.
