Event description

Description

With Dr Angel Chater (£95 Hertfordshire Organisations/£195 non-Hertfordshire Organisations)

Course description:
Any programme that aims to change behaviour needs careful consideration. Intervention mapping provides a protocol for considerations that may improve our understanding of behaviour change when planning such programmes. However, there are many intertwined and overlapping models and theoretical approaches that could be drawn upon when addressing programmes that aim to engage a diverse audience and change behaviour.

This 2-part workshop will introduce you to the leading and most recent approaches, most specifically the Behaviour Change Wheel (Michie et al., 2011) and theoretical frameworks to support your understanding of behaviour change programme design, delivery and evaluation. It will further support group discussions that will encourage you to apply knowledge gained from the workshop to a programme that you may be working on or have an interest in developing. To facilitate this, it would be helpful if you come along with details of a programme you are working on or planning in the future.

Dates:

The course will be delivered in 2 parts;
Part 1: Friday, 30th June 9.30 – 3.30pm
Part 2: Friday, 22nd September 10am – 1pm

*It is essential delegates attend both sessions.*


By the end of these training sessions you will:

1. Initial training session

  • develop an understanding of the importance of planning programme development

  • show consideration for the specific stages of needs assessment, setting objectives, specifying programme outcomes in behavioural terms, content development in relation to behaviour change techniques, implementing a programme to ensure fidelity and appropriate evaluation.

2. Second training session

  • reflect on the application of knowledge gained through this workshop to a programme you are currently working on with formative feedback
