Importantly, decision outcomes can vary as a function of which type of processing is engaged. Similar dual processing models were earlier evident in theories of attitude formation and change (Chaiken, ; Petty and Cacioppo, ). The dual processing approach is now much more broadly applied to various aspects of decision making however. In psychology, an attitude refers to a set of emotions, beliefs, and behaviors toward a particular object, person, thing, or event. Attitudes are often the result of experience or upbringing, and they can have a powerful influence over behavior. While attitudes are enduring, they can also change.

This book describes 83 theories of behaviour change, identified by an expert panel of psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists and economists as relevant to designing interventions. For each theory, the book provides a brief summary, a list of its component constructs, a more extended description and a network analysis to show its links. The many opposing theories to answer this question reflects not only the complexity but also the importance of the field. A central concern of social psychology, attitude change is also relevant to the study of human behavior in general, and a matter of major significance to .

Carl Iver Hovland (J – Ap ) was a psychologist working primarily at Yale University and for the US Army during World War II who studied attitude change and first reported the sleeper effect after studying the effects of the Frank Capra's propaganda film Why We Fight on soldiers in the Army.

The research proves that the investigation of attitude theories would give an opportunity to understand how attitudes are formed, their influence on people`s behavior and whether it is possible to change individuals` attitudes. It is an obvious fact that people with positive attitudes feel themselves more protected and secure in life.
