This site is based on an Ecological Model which takes a look at you and your environment. This model includes 5 levels of influence:  intrapersonal factors, interpersonal processes and primary groups, institutional factors, community factors and public policy.  Intrapersonal deals with how the person views his or her own self worth, beauty, eating and physical activity.  The second level, interpersonal, is concerned with social factors such as interaction with peers and adults.  Institutional factors are the third level and involve how organizations, such as school, influence individual behaviors.  Level 4, community factors, are factors with the home and neighborhood that influence healthy habits.The final level, public policy, deals with change through rules and laws.
