The basic tools that individuals need to respond to situational demands are outlined in this section: knowledge, skills, and competencies. Skills including decision making, communication, negotiation, self-knowledge, identifying and managing emotions, empathy and perspective taking, and reflection. Comprehensive development programs and education systems ideally promote the development of these individual tools through participatory methodology and repetitive practice. Such programs go under the name “Programming for Choice.” This chapter also explores attitudes and intentions as precursors to behavior, working from Fishbein and Ajzen’s Theory of Reasoned Action.

Keywords:   communication, knowledge, skills, competencies, attitudes, intentions, programming for choice, Theory of Reasoned Action, Ajzen, Fishbein
