This work covers the entire empirical cycle in adolescent health research and education. In it, the development and evaluation of a health education programme designed to enhance everyday health-related behaviours in an adolescent population is described in depth. It offers comprehensive reviews of developmental theories of adolescence, ethical and theoretical issues in health education, and the major theories used in adolescent health research. The research presented here leads to the development and testing of the theory of salient meanings of behaviour. The inception, growth, testing and field testing of this new theory are traced here. The book is designed to appeal to both theoretical and applied scientists in the field of adolescent development, adolescent health and education.
