dc.description.abstractThe psychological impact of receiving hypothetical genetic risk information for breast cancer, with and without lifestyle information, was investigated. The psychological responses included in the study were drawn from three theories of behaviour change and included perceived risk, beliefs in health behaviours, motivations to change health behaviours, and use of coping strategies. Vignettes were used to present hypothetical risk information to 198 female university students. Results indicated that lifestyle information had an impact on psychological measures, in particular, increased beliefs in health behaviours, increased motivation for exercise, and decreased rational problem solving. Suggestions for future research are discussed.en_US
