Webinar recap | The science of behaviour change (and how to reach your health goals)

It's all about starting where you are ... and moving forward with the right support and strategies

There are a number of evidence-backed strategies that have been shown through research to be effective in helping people change health-related behaviours.  These strategies can help adjust how you eat (i.e. more greens and less meat); move (i.e. moderate exercise for 150 minutes five times a week) or think (i.e. manage stress to be less reactive). But what if you know what you need to do and haven’t been able to make a sustainable change on your own?

During this webinar recorded on June 6, 2018, a psychologist and a registered nurse discuss the stages of behaviour change and effective strategies from two approaches: (i) clinical psychology; and (ii) health coach approach.

Dr. Amanda Beaman, C. Psych and Megan McAdam, RN, BScN  cover:

  • The science of behaviour change: what works, what doesn’t
  • Coaches aren’t just for athletes: Understanding self-efficacy and the role of an accountability partner
  • Psychology vs. health coaching: similarities, differences
  • Stages of behaviour change
  • When to seek external support
