Reflection Paper Instructions
In Module/Week 5, you will be required to submit a paper in which you assess the HEALTH BELIEF MODEL in light of biblical principles. Your paper must be between 2–3 pages (before the Bibliography & Title Page).
Each of the following sections must begin with the heading that is provided below in bold type.
1. HBM Overview
Provide a brief overview of the HBM. (Please make sure to cite your sources in the paper as well as the Bibliography.)
2. Biblical Application
Provide an instance or example where scripture supports one or more of the constructs of the HBM. (This must have corresponding scriptural support.)
3. Biblical Contrast
Outline at least one variable or component of the HBM which you feel does not align with scripture. Include scriptural support with your rationale. (An answer such as “I do not believe there are any variables which contrast scripture” will NOT be accepted.)
You must include a title page and a reference page. You must also include the provided section headers that are outlined above.
One point will be deducted for each formatting error. Five points will be deducted if the paper is not submitted on time.
