Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Health promotion programs are a very effective approach to lowering the number of preventable health problems among adolescents. Brief interventions are evidence-based, health-promoting programs designed for adolescents. The Behavior-Image Model (BIM) is a new model devised for planned multiple behavior interventions and brief health interventions. This study was conducted to determine the effect of brief interventions based on the Behavior-Image Model on adolescent health behaviors.
