Development of multi-dimensional health locus of control
Health Locus of Control
in Late Life: A study of genetic and enviromental influences in twins aged 80 years and older.
Health locus of control
beliefs and alcohol-related factors that may influence treatment outcomes.
To determine the convergent validity of the PSS-10 with measures of anxiety, depression, and health locus of control
There will be a difference between herbal users and nonherbal users with respect to demographics (education, economics, race, gender, and age) and health belief system as measured by health locus of control
items (internal, external, and chance control);
Univariate analyses showed that the CTS patients had significantly higher levels of anxiety, depression, and other health locus of control
Although, at first glance, health locus of control
of perceived health competence concepts seems similar, Smith, Wallston, and Smith (1995), in their comprehensive research, found no relationship between internal health locus of control
and perceived health competence in an undergraduate sample.
The following research will investigate whether such a differential pattern exists for three concepts that can be conceived of as psychological barriers to exercise uptake: self-rated health, life stress, and health locus of control
The participants' mean score for internal health locus of control
was higher than that for powerful others or chance.
Levels of stress and anxiety were assessed before and after the intervention program; also, changes in mental adjustment and health locus of control
It may be that this literature reflects the genuine state of affairs, with health locus of control
having little consistent association with health behaviour.
