Program/Intervention Description

Intervention Target Population Identified (Age Group)


Program Goals/Outcomes

The results of this research Generally support the application of the TTM to emotional readiness for adoption and the development of measures for each of the TTM constructs. The measurement models for Decisional Balance, Self-Efficacy, and the Processes of Change were Generally consistent with how the constructs are construed in the TTM. The relationship between the stages of change and each of the other TTM constructs were also Generally consistent with cross-sectional patterns predicted by TTM.
