Doktorsavhandling Skarin 2023:10
Nedan följer en kort beskrivning av innehållet (ur baksidestexten):
Lifestyle behaviors such as increased private car use, stress, low physical activity, and unhealthy eating negatively affect individual and global health, environment and economy. We must change, not only to decrease suffering and economical costs, but to promote wellbeing for flourishing human beings on a living planet. It is not simple to change ingrained behaviors, but the success rate for behavior change interventions is high, yet not automatically lasting. Despite growing problems and brief change generating brief effects, research on maintained intervention-induced behavior is scarce. Due to this research gap, this thesis aims to broaden understanding of psychological mechanisms involved in maintained lifestyle-related intervention-induced behavior and suggest potential development for initiators and participants. This aim is approached through three field studies involving travel behavior, wellbeing activities, physical activity and healthy eating.
For maintained intervention-induced behavior change, the main findings imply the importance of: Focusing on behavior goals; undergoing positive experiences during an intervention; experiencing gains from immediate outcomes; and learning to apply a flexible approach meeting shifting conditions throughout the intervention phases.
