Smoking related interactions in single-smoking couples: can dyadic planning improve cessation? (Health Psychology, University Medical Center Groningen)
apr. 2015 – present
The aim of this project is three-fold: (1) to understand the attempts of the non-smoking partner to motivate the smoker to quit smoking, (2) to establish the effectiveness of partner support in the form of dyadic planning during a quit attempt and (3) to gain insight into the working-mechanisms of dyadic planning to optimize its effectiveness. This project will yield important insights into how single-smoking couples deal with smoking and which aspects of their relationship withhold or motivate the smoking partner to quit. Furthermore, it is the first step towards a novel, cost-effective intervention in which the non-smoking partner is involved to help the smoker to quit smoking.
