University College London: CBC Summer School

Behavior change is increasingly recognized as central to human well-being, social cohesion and environmental sustainability. Changing behavior and how to maintain that change is complex and requires a systematic approach to intervention development, implementation and evaluation. 

This one-week course introduces the principles of behavior change and demonstrate how these can be applied to a range of practical problems; from supporting change amongst patients and health professionals, to planning and supporting change in organisations and communities.

For more information on the course and schedules, please click on the image below:

The course is based on the Behavior Change Wheel and participants will learn how to understand behavior using the COM-B model (Capability, Opportunity, Motivation – Behavior) and to design and evaluate interventions to change behavior. In addition to examples of how the Behavior Change Wheel has been used in practice, there are sessions on maintaining behavior change and changing behavior at the organisational level.

Course Format

The course is highly participatory, with short presentations, discussions, group work and tutorials. Mentor groups at the end of each day led by experienced facilitators support participants in applying the learning points from each day to their own situations. Every participant leaves with an individual, tailored action plan for applying what they have learnt in the course to their own situation.
