Why is it so hard to change our behavior? This course examines the subject of behavioral change by presenting the Transtheoretical Model of change. The Transtheoretical Model is based on extensive research and combines several theories and approaches to the change process. After looking at the challenges of change and common myths about change, the learner is introduced to nine major processes related to changing behavior. These processes are applied and related to the six major stages of change. While the material in this course is relevant to behavior change in any context, connections to substance abuse are identified and discussed.
