Stages of Change and Integrated Health Care
Duration:  1 hour
Join Dr. Carlo DiClemente, co-creator of the Transtheoretical Model of intentional behavior change, to discuss adoption and use of this model within a whole health, integrated care framework. We will review the multidimensional tasks identified in the stages of change model, recent research and applications with alcohol, substance use and smoking interventions, and application to other health behaviors and chronic conditions such as diabetes management and medication adherence. Methods to expand use of the model for initiation, modification and cessation of health behavior will be discussed, including adoption and implementation of innovations at the organizational level. 


During this webinar, we will learn how to:

  • Understand key tasks of each of the stages of change: Interest and concern, decision making, planning and commitment, plan revision and lifestyle integration of behavior change
  • Know the different challenges of initiation, modification and cessation of health behaviors
  • Understand the differences between imposed and chosen change and implications for organizational change
Please note: this webinar is a free event, and no CEUs or certificates of participation are provided. All registrants will receive a copy of the recorded webinar and slides if you cannot attend the live event.
