FRAGELLI, Thaís Branquinho Oliveira and GUNTHER, Isolda de Araújo. Ecological approach to evaluate of preventive behavior: proposal of an inventory applied to musicians. Per musi [online]. 2012, n.25, pp.73-84. ISSN 1517-7599. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-75992012000100007.
This study aimed at developing an inventory to assess social and physical environments determinants that influence the healthy behavior related to prevention of occupational injuries in musicians. The process of constructing the inventory is based on the guidelines for construction of psychological instruments by PASQUALI (1999) and the concept formulated by the ecological perspective. From this theoretical standpoint it is proposed a model to examine the preventive behavior based on three components: a) the beliefs of musicians on preventive behavior, b) an assessment of working conditions available in space for music practice, c) and social influence in the musical environment.
