Course Description:

 

This course provides a theory-driven approach to developing a culturally relevant motivational intervention to promote physical activity among older Hispanic women. The wellness motivation theory (WMT) guided development of Intervencion de Motivacion Para Actividad Fisica [Motivational Intervention for Physical Activity], grounded in formative research, partnership with community members, and strengths of community-based physical activity interventions with Hispanic women. The Intervencion focuses on the mechanisms that link motivational resources to physical activity, fostering social contextual and behavioral change process resources.

 

This course is based upon material published by the National Institutes of Health Public Access program as an author manuscript and is available as an open access article. The final edited version of the article is published in Geriatric Nursing.

 

This course on motivational intervention for physical activity is designed for social workers, professional counselors, psychologists, nurses, and substance abuse counselors, who do clinical work. This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of motivating the elderly to be more physically active. The course material includes a review of wellness motivation theory. It may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require clinical continuing education courses for license renewal.
