The invited commentaries to Hobbis and Sutton (this issue) show that we achieved our aim of stimulating debate about the development of new approaches to health behaviour change. Diverse opinions were expressed, including discussion of the feasibility of integrating techniques used in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) into interventions based on the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB), commenton the integration of the two models at a theoretical level and consideration of CBT as an alternative to the TPB in health behaviour change. While we felt that an apparent bias towards the TPB precluded acknowledgement of the potential benefits associated with utilizing techniques used in CBT, we were encouraged by the general recognition that further research linking these two approaches is warranted.
