Intention to Success, Part 1

  1. 1. From Intention to Action
  2. 2. From Action to Success Part 1
  3. 3. Introduction The Stages of Change Model was originally developed in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s by James Prochaska and Carlo DiClemente at the University of Rhode Island. Change is a process that involves several stages- People progress through different stages on their way to successful change. Each of us progresses through the stages at our own rate. Each person must decide for himself or herself when a stage is completed and when it is time to move on to the next stage. This decision must come from the inside. Long term change cannot be imposed from the outside. In each of the stages, a person has to grapple with a different set of issues and tasks that relate to changing behavior.
  4. 4. The stages of change are: 1. Precontemplation (Not yet acknowledging that there is a problem behavior that needs to be changed) 2. Contemplation (Acknowledging that there is a problem but not yet ready or sure of wanting to make a change) 3. Preparation/Determination (Getting ready to change) 4. Action/Willpower (Changing behavior) 5. Maintenance (Maintaining the behavior change) and 6. Relapse (Returning to older behaviors and abandoning the new changes) This presentation focuses on stages 2 and 3.
