HSABC Webinar: Supporting People to Make Changes in Their Lives

November 8, 2022, 10:00 - 11:30 AM

We all know change is hard.  We also likely have had the experience of trying to support another person in a change effort, and despite our best intentions, things don’t go so well.

What does the science say works?  How does behavior change happen?  What can we do to support people in making changes?

By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Understand the challenge of behavior change
  • Discuss how the “best intentions” in helping can actually backfire
  • Identify practical skills they can use in their daily activities to support others in changing their own behavior
