stages of change workshop




Skill Level



November 23 & 30, 2024

The best way to get insight into these things is to understand the transtheoretical model of behavior change, also known as The Stages of Change. This workshop will provide you with information that sheds light on the confusing behavior you may be seeing, and give you positive, strategic ways to interact with your child at each stage.
