Stages and Processes of Change (Part 2)

In this Background Briefing we continue a description of the Transtheoretical Model of Change, focusing on the cognitive and behavioural activities that facilitate change. The extent to which each of these processes is used depends on what state of change the person who has a problematic behaviour has reached.

“However, punishment is rarely used by people who change themselves or by therapists, since it neither leading to lasting change nor is ethical. Rewards are often used successfully to change behaviour.”
