The Health Belief Model

Reflection Paper Instructions

The Health Belief Model

In Module/Week 5, you will be required to submit a paper in which you assess the Health Belief Model (HBM) in light of biblical principles. Your paper must be between 2–3 pages (before the Bibliography & Title Page).

Each of the following sections must begin with the heading that is provided below in bold type.

1. HBM Overview

Provide a detailed overview of the HBM. Make sure to briefly address the six constructs of this model. (Please remember to cite your sources in the paper as well as the Bibliography.)

2. Value Expectancy

Explain why the HBM is considered to be a value expectancy theory. Make sure to discuss the 2 variables of a value expectancy theory and their impact on the process of goal-setting.

3. Biblical Application

Identify one of the six constructs of the HBM which you believe aligns with scripture. Make sure to include scriptural support with your rationale. (Please note that simply making comparisons between scripture and good health or proper stewardship of one’s body is not adequate. You need to show a specific correlation between a construct and scripture.)

4. Biblical Contrast

Identify one of the six constructs of the HBM which you feel does not align with scripture. Make sure to include scriptural support with your rationale. (Please note that an answer such as “I do not believe there are any variables which contrast scripture” will not be accepted.)

a. Font must be Times New Roman in 12-point pitch for entire paper
