Abstract

The Transtheoretical Model (TTM) is a contemporary psychological model of behavioral change employed to develop efficient interventions to promote healthy behavioral changes. Interventions can be individualized to the needs of individuals in order to achieve optimal results. No integrated plan currently exists in Taiwan for reducing cigarette use among children. This article presents a systematic review of TTM, with the goal of constructing a model for protecting teenagers against tobacco-related health risks. Analysis results are hoped to be useful as a reference for developing systematic interventions aimed at reducing the health risks posed to teenagers by cigarette smoking.
