Leventhal, Meyer, and Nerenz’s(1980) common sense self-regulation model has transformed research and evidence about how people respond to health threats. Instead of the previous mass of diverse disparate studies, there is now a coherent cumulative science and sufficient evidence for the impress- ive meta-analysis of Hagger, Koch, Chatzisarantis, and Orbell (2017) and the excellent reviews reported in this volume.
