Stages of Change

This model came to us courtesy of our SME for our initial project for BET because of its focus on behavior change. The 5-stage (7 fewer than 12!) model recognizes that sustainable change doesn’t occur overnight and that each person starts from different points on a continuum of healthy behaviors. Through instructional design built on relevance, guidance, and practice, change moves along the continuum toward the final stage: Maintenance.
