Your Practicum and Theory Practice
Reflecting on the opportunities you have had throughout your practicum experience, how have you seen theory applied? Provide a specific example in which you, your mentor, or someone else in the organization used a particular public health or behavior-changing theory in an intervention design. Explain the theory and how it was applied to creating and implementing the intervention. Do you think this theory was most appropriate to address the public health issue? Does it do a good job of addressing cultural sensitivities, promoting equity, and taking advantage of the tools and resources available to the organization and the community? Be specific and cite literature and texts as appropriate.
