The health skill, Analyze Influences, focuses on identifying and understanding the diverse internal and external factors that affect health practices and behaviors. To show proficiency in this skill, students first analyze why and how external and internal influences impact their health behaviors. Then, they evaluate whether those influences support or do not support future health goals. Analyze Influences is foundational for teaching other health skills because it prepares students to first understand the variety of influences on their behavior, which is an essential precursor to mastering health skills, such as Access Valid Information, Interpersonal Communication, Decision-Making, Goal-Setting, Self-Management, and Advocacy for Self & Others.
