Healthy Child Manitoba (HCM) is unique in the Western Hemisphere, as the only provincial or state level strategy for the comprehensive support and prevention of children's issues from prenatal through young adulthood. All data are linked, with care for confidentiality, so that the impact of provincial initiatives can be evaluated. Dr. Embry was a keynote speaker outlining what might happen in the next decade of Healthy Child Manitoba.

  9. 9. What is a kernel? Is the smallest unit of scientifically proven behavioral influence. • Is indivisible; that is, removing any part makes it inactive. Produces quick easily measured change that can grow much bigger change over time. Can be be used alone OR combined with other kernels to create new programs, strategies or policies. • Are the active ingredients of evidence-based programs • Can be spread by word-of-mouth, by modeling, by non professionals. • Can address historic disparities without stigma, in part because they are also found in cultural wisdom.

  72. 72. If kernels are so good… Thursday, November 18, 2010 72
  73. 73. How have kernels evolved? The first (almost certainly antecedents) were selected by consequence for immediate reinforcement of food, protection, etc. Early tools come to mind as examples. The second (physiological) probably also arouse by selection by consequences by providing relief from physical or emotional distress. The third (relational frames) arouse with invention of oral and written language, selected by consequences to protect against danger from other humans or natural harm. The forth (contingent reinforcement) arouse with invention of oral and written language, selected by consequences for social advantage within groups and survival advantage of kin. Thursday, November 18, 2010 73
  74. 74. Using kernels to build population-level change… Problem Kernel #1 Observed Proximal Observed Effect Kernel Proximal Kernel #2 Effect Kernel Big Kernel #3 Change Effect Observed Proximal Effect t Thursday, November 18, 2010 74
  75. 75. Rule #1 of big change A big population-level change requires myriads of reliable, measurable small behavioral changes in at least 20% to 25% of the the total population. Blame is not a kernel. A diagnoses is not a kernel. “Shoulds” are not a kernel. Blame, diagnoses, and “shoulds” are personal or group ways of experiential avoidance for dealing with failure of the methods to create desired change. Thursday, November 18, 2010 75
  76. 76. Rule #2 of big change Always maximize the dignity and self-sufficiency of the persons whose behavior you wish to influence. If you fail this step, you will be meet resistance, counter-control and sabotage of the group of persons to maintain their dignity and self-sufficiency. This is a basic feature of human social interactions from which our species has evolved. Dead, disposed or failed chiefs and leaders liter human history who failed to observe the key universal feature of human societies. Thursday, November 18, 2010 76
  77. 77. Rule #3 of big change Pay attention to variations in behavior for improvement. Small differences—when done by many people— can make the difference between night and day. These small differences are the the variation in quality control that great car companies like Toyota or Honda to make incremental improvements. Look for innovations as well as problems. Thursday, November 18, 2010 77
  78. 78. Rule # 4 Big Change with a kernel requires other kernels A kernel that you want to promote to affect a specific behavior will require other kernels to make the specific action happen. This because other behaviors or people will be required before and after or in other settings for cooperation to happen. Thursday, November 18, 2010 78
