Social-Cognitive Processes in Behavioral Health Academic Article uri icon


  • Social cognitive variables are salient factors in the prevention, development, and maintenance of health-related problems. These variables are of particular interest to counseling psychologists, as they are amenable to a variety of psychological interventions. We review several social-cognitive processes that have been studied in relation to behavioral health and health-related problems. We then discuss implications for assessment and theory-based interventions. © 1995, Sage Publications. All rights reserved.
