Phase 3 of the PRECEDE-PROCEED model is the education and ecological assessment. After the key risk factors have been identified, they are classified into three categories: Predisposing, reinforcing, and enabling factors. Approaches to these factors may vary depending on the setting, so it is important to take both the factors and the setting into account in the program planning process.
In Week 1, you selected and analyzed a health issue, (Unprotected intercourse among teens) explaining the populations or groups most affected by it. In Week 2, you examined the behavioral and environmental risk factors related to your selected health issue. This week, based on your analysis in Week 2,select one or two behavioral risk factors as the focus for the final project.

- Identify the predisposing, reinforcing, and enabling factors for each selected behavioral risk factor.

- Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of two different settings that can be used to address the health behavior in the targeted population.
Support your statements with scholarly references and appropriate examples.
Cite all sources using the APA format. Make sure all references are cited in APA format. References should be current at least within the last 5 years. Remember that references should be used to support your peer responses.
