        • Its the addict's perception of whether people approve or disapprove
  • Evaluation
    • One limitation is that the treatment cannot account for intention-behavior gap, can't explain how actual behavior arose from intention
      • Researcher study gambling behaviors of underage teenagers and found that strong support for the element of TPB that predict intention from attitudes, social subjective norms and perceived control
        • Did not predict the occurrence of gambling behavior, therefore it is hard to create drug-related interventions
    • Another limitation of TPB us the mythological issues as is was based on self-report, where aspects are assessed by asking individuals about their views.
      • However, self-report methods are substantial and include social desirability bias, as participates may say things to make themselves look good
    • A strength of TPB is the research support, as researcher tested the TPB's prediction bout alcohol-related behaviors.
