Social Science and Behavioral
Theory

A Fresh Approach

Values, Body Weight, and Well
Being: Influence of the Protestant
Ethic & Consumerism on Physical
Activity, Eating, and Body Image

A Human Framework


Individual and Focus Group Interviews


Part of community based, health
improvement program (WIN the Rockies)


Grounded Theory Analysis:

A researcher using this approach will propose a
theory about what they are studying that can later be
tested. This contradicts the traditional model of
research, where the researcher chooses a theoretical
framework, and then applies the model to what they
are studying.

Implications for Educators


Human beings have a unique capacity

to live intentionally.


If communities and people become

more aware of social values, they can

rethink the forces that have shaped

attitudes and behaviors.


Education and self
-
reflection can

lead to self
-
liberating goals.


Focus can be shifted to practices that are
highly meaningful, rather than ways of

living that are less significant.

An Example


A person has been raised to value
only productive physical activity
that accomplishes a necessary
task.


They are unlikely to “walk just to be
walking.”


But they may welcome
opportunities to participate in
“lifestyle physical activity.”


So, community projects, charitable
work, gardening, or walking
instead of driving may be more
appealing.


Another Example


The Clean Plate Club

Honor values of thrift

and self
-
mastery


Be frugal, serve less


Be disciplined, leave a little


Honor and feed many kinds of
hunger

Help People Understand

their Choices


Behavior modification


Self
-
exploration
