This is a practical guide to designing and evaluating behaviour change interventions and policies.
It is based on the Behaviour Change Wheel, a synthesis of 19 behaviour change frameworks that draw on a wide range of disciplines and approaches. The guide is for policy makers, practitioners, intervention designers and researchers and introduces a systematic, theory-based method, key concepts and practical tasks.
The Behaviour Change Wheel Guide is aimed to be useable across a wide range of disciplines, types of expertise and approaches. It puts “flesh on the bones” of good practice guidelines, such as the UK’s Medical Research Council’s (MRC) guidance on how to systematically develop and evaluate complex interventions (Craig et al., 2008), specifically its recommendation that interventions should be informed by relevant theories and specified by their component behaviour change techniques. The Guide provides a practical, step-by-step method, illustrated by examples from a wide range of domains and disciplines.
Written by Susan Michie, Robert West, Rona Campbell, Jamie Brown, and Heather Gainforth, this book describes 83 theories relevant to design of behaviour change interventions together with an analysis of the role and application of theory in this vital area. The theories were identified by an expert panel of psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists and economists. For each theory, the book provides a brief summary, a list of its component constructs, a more extended description and a network analysis to show its links with other theories in the book.
For each theory, the book provides a brief summary, a list of its component constructs, a more extended description and a network analysis to show its links with other theories in the book. It considers the role of theory in understanding behaviour change and its application to designing and evaluating interventions.
How should we think about and understand human behaviour? What’s the role of theoretical models? How can – and should – such models be used in practice? And what can we learn from the many different academic and practical perspectives on the subject?
This book, aimed at anyone with an interest in behaviour change, offers a fresh and challenging take on these questions. It comprises a Dialogue, which sets out key debates in a lively and accessible way, and 21 commentaries written from a wide range of standpoints, including academic, commercial and public sector.
Behaviour change interventions are increasingly being delivered through digital channels including websites, smartphone apps, and wearables. While these new channels of delivery offer huge opportunities for novel and personalised interventions, they also come with their own specific challenges and difficulties.
This monograph is an ideal starting point for anyone wanting to understand more about digital behaviour change interventions, offering plenty of references and links for more in depth reading on each of the topics discussed.
This comprehensive guide written by Professors Susan Michie and Robert West outlines the current state of research around digital behaviour change interventions and provide guidelines for the development of new digital interventions. It discusses intervention techniques uniquely possible with digital technology such as personalised and just-in-time interventions as well as general intervention design and evaluation rules and guidance.
