Stages of Behavior Change

In this activity, you learn about the stages of change model, which discusses how people perceive, prepare for, and affect change. You will also <a href=””>reflect</a> on your attitudes toward change and on how you might respond to a group that supports or confronts you during a personal transformation. A primary purpose of this activity is to build empathy for clients who are participating in change-oriented groups. These situations might call for you to self-disclose about your personal struggles. You will watch a TEDx talk about personal change and a video that describes the stages of change model. Then you will complete and submit a self-assessment worksheet.

Upon successful completion of this assignment, you will be able to:

Develop self-reflection and self-regulation to effectively manage the intersection of personal and professional values. (PO 1)

Background Information
One foundational belief of social work is that all people can create change, no matter their circumstances or deficits. With that said, there is a general recognition by practitioners and scholars alike that change is difficult. It requires personal and community support. As stated in the National Association of Social Work (NASW) Code of Ethics, “Social workers seek to enhance clients’ capacity and opportunity to change and to address their own needs.” The NASW further recognizes that relationships are an important vehicle for affecting change (NASW Code of Ethics, 2017).

The stages of change model, part of the trans-theoretical model of behavioral change developed by James Prochaska and Carlo Di Clemente in the 1970s, assess an individual’s readiness to create behavioral change (Prochaska &amp; DiClemente, 2005). This model is used in social work to support clients who have various levels of awareness, preparedness, and ability to create personal change. Additionally, Zastrow (2019) highlights the importance of using theoretical concepts as a lens through which we analyze problems and create planned change as we help group members address various issues and challenges.
