CBC Summer School: Behaviour Change – Principles and Practice

31 July - 4 August

Event Navigation

This five-day course will introduce you to the principles of behaviour change and how these can be applied to practical problems in your own area of interest.

It’s aimed at everyone interested in behaviour change – from researchers, practitioners and intervention designers to managers and policy makers.

Course content

The course will look at the principles of behaviour change and demonstrate how these can be applied to a variety of practical problems – from supporting change among patients and health professionals, to planning and supporting change in organisations and communities.

It will give you:

  • a greater understanding of the possibilities for applying behaviour change interventions to your own situation
  • a practical framework for developing, implementing and evaluating these interventions in your area of interest

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:

  • describe and discuss how capability, opportunity and motivation interact to support behaviour change using the COM-B model and analyse behaviour in context and identify targets for change using the COM-B model
  • apply the Behaviour Change Wheel to develop a broad strategy for behaviour change
  • identify specific behaviour change techniques to include in interventions in the strategy
  • describe key principles underpinning maintenance of behaviour change
  • describe and discuss how to embed behavioural change within organisations
