First, a model of action phases and its concomitant concepts of implemental mindsets and implementation intentions (Gollwitzer, 1990; 1993) are used to explore how the initiation of health goal directed behaviors can be facilitated and how the performance of health goal directed actions is enhanced. Second, recent theorizing on the psychology of thinking about the future (Oettingen, 1996; 1997) is employed to discuss conditions and processes of the emergence of health goals. It is suggested that contrasting positive fantasies about the future with reflections on the negative aspects of reality create binding health goals that reliably affect people's behaviors.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:16:21Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>1998</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First pub. in: Psychology and Health, 13 (1998), pp. 687-715</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Gollwitzer, Peter M.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Oettingen, Gabriele</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:16:21Z</dc:date> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dcterms:title>The emergence and implementation of health goals</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Oettingen, Gabriele</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Gollwitzer, Peter M.</dc:creator> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
