"The Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change (TTM) is a useful and practical tool for guiding people through changing their behavior. It consists of four components: processes of change, stages of change, self-efficacy, and decisional balance. This webinar will provide brief background about the model, with a focus on the stages of change and decisional balance. Dr. Nageotte will share how the TTM can be used with front end, formative, and summative evaluations for influencing and measuring conservation behavior outcomes in conservation education programs.
