With a balance of theory, research, and applications, Motivation for Sustaining Health Behavior Change: The Self-as-Doer Identity introduces the self-as-doer identity as an accessible motivational identity and discusses how it can be incorporated into health behavior change efforts. The book introduces the self-as-doer theory and presents research and recommendations for how the self-as-doer can be used in both clinical and non-clinical populations to promote health behavior change and maintenance. The book will be of interest to researchers, students, and professionals interested in health promotion.

Reviews

'What if successful people define themselves as verbs, not as nouns? As doers, not as objects? Amanda Brouwer skillfully illuminates how to use this technique to become a healthier eater, as well as an effective "doer" more generally.' Kennon M. Sheldon, Curators’ Distinguished Professor of Psychological Sciences, University of Missouri, USA
