Galen (circa 129–199ad) believed all physical and mental illnesses were the result of physical causes, the four humours underpinning four dominant temperaments (sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic and melancholic) (Karpozilos and Pavlidis, 2004). Healthy individuals had well-balanced humours, but if external factors operated out of balance, it would affect illbalanced internal humours and result in ill health. The dualistic model of Descartes (1596– 1650) has been useful in developing our understanding of the aetiology of ill health through his recognition of ‘the mind’ as a distinct but interacting entity from ‘the body’ (Descartes, 1984–1991).

4 Self-regulatory model The self-regulatory model (or common sense model) developed by Leventhal and colleagues (Leventhal, Meyer and Nerenz, 1980; Leventhal, Brisette and Leventhal, 2003) has a number of constructs of which the central one is the individual’s lay beliefs or representations about the illness. These lay beliefs are shaped by normative guidelines, which in turn combine to make sense of illness symptoms and coping actions. The model relies on five components specifically for illness representations including, identity, cause, time line, consequences, curability and controllability.
