Multiple Behavior Change SIG
The Multiple Behavior Change (MBC) Special Interest Group aims to further scientific theory and promote physical activity and health behaviors from a broad theoretical framework. Target behaviors relevant to our mission include (but are not limited to) physical activity, nutrition, drug use, and pro-environmental behaviors. The group will encourage discussion of theory and practice to (a) surface the similarities and differences among leading theories and evidence-based interventions, (b) address ways to overcome challenges of targeting multiple behaviors (e.g., methodology), and (c) find funding resources that can be used for projects associated with the science of multiple behavior change. Members will be encouraged to maintain a dialogue throughout the year to facilitate a greater awareness of on-going MBC projects and collaboration among members. Each member will be asked to develop submissions to the annual AASP conference related to the mission of MBC, and to serve as reviewers for relevant journals and AASP program submissions.
