So the transtheoretical model of behaviour change consists of 5 stages
1. Pre - Contemplation
2. Contemplation
3. Preparation
4. Action
5. Maintenance

- From my understanding, the individual can enter and exit from any stage of the model.
- Going through all my notes and other resources it doesn't seem that 'relapse' is a stage of the model, but rather a part of it which can occur at any stage.

However, browsing the web, in the new version of the model there is a 6th stage consisting of termination/relapse.

So I guess that may be why relapse was the answer.

For relapse though, can't you only relapse if you are in the action or maintenance stage? Because you haven't really done anything in the other stages which means you can't relapse.

Yes, relapse is common in the action and maintenance stages.

Relapse can be described as a sixth stage, like the study design stating 'maintenance/relapse', however it involves resuming old behaviours. One must start over the transtheoretical model in one of the stages determined by the scenario. Maintenance occurs when the behaviour has been occurring for 6 months or more without relapse. Lapses may occur and the individual may still be considered to be in the maintenance stage.

Personally I do not refer to relapse as a sixth stage, just an episode most possibly occurring in action/maintenance.

Hi everyone,
I am currently a year 11 doing 3/4 psych and the exam is almost a day away now but I was just wondering if anyone can tell me if for the exam, we have to write long answers all in extra writing space or can we continue the question (using small handwriting) underneath the last line that is on the question. So will the examiners still read (obv not writing on the no writing space) (sorry for the silly question)

also my teacher kept telling us that we will have blank sheets of paper to make notes on (that's not marked) so that we can use to plan our answers or do little scribbles etc. Is this true?

Lastly, is there any advice for doing well on the exam, I am aiming for 40+ and my SAC scores havent been top  (averaging around 86%) (apparently my school is really harsh on sacs in general) what percentage should i be aiming for in my practise exams to get 40+?? (i have been averaging around 83% so far)

Thanks!!

Hi

You can write underneath the lines, however, my teacher has told us to refrain from writing on the sides of the page as sometimes when they scan the exams, the writing gets cut off. Also don't write to small, as the examiners need to be able to easily read what you write.

I'm not sure if we get blank sheets of paper to plan out stuff, but you can always use the extra writing space at the back of the exam i guess.

and lastly, all you can focus now is on your exams, so to be hitting the 40+ mark you would need to be getting hitting  83% and above.
( according to https://twmpublications.com/statistics

good luck

In my exams we didn't get blank pieces of paper and I'd be surprised if you did, but you can use the extra space at the back and/or request additional booklets if needed

Just to confirm - is breathing slow and shallow during a phobic anxiety response which activates then causes the SNS to be activated to increase breathing rate or is it fast (which is caused by SNS being activated)?

When a phobia sufferer encounters their specific phobic stimulus they will display a phobic (fear/anxiety) response, which usually results in the activation of the sympathetic nervous system. When this occurs the individual may hyper-ventilate causing an offset in the balance of oxygen and carbon-dioxide in the body, which is one of the reasons breathing re-training is usuful in treating people with phobia's

sorry just adding onto that, a phobic response results in FAST and shallow breathing, not slow and shallow
