PRESENTATION:  This training will introduce participants to the theoretical constructs that make up the Stages of Change model.  Participants will learn about the different stages and their role in promoting behavioral change at the individual, family, and community levels.  The model will be presented within the context of Substance Use Disorders (SUDs), with special emphasis on recovery and wellness.  As a result of this training participants will be able to:  Identify the theoretical constructs central to Stages of Change; Name the stages of change and how individuals, families, and entire communities establish behavioral change goals and take steps toward change; and Describe the specific techniques used to apply the Stages of Change Model in practice and articulate their role in promoting change for people with SUDs.
