Connecting with Change: The Mindset and Physiology of the Stages of Change (Transtheoretical Model) | Barbara Broadbear & Jim Broadbear


What is one thing you could start doing today that would have a profound, positive impact on your wellness? Chances are this is a behavior you have contemplated doing for some time but haven’t. What does this feel like? Together, we will clarify and deepen our connection with clients’ journeys through the hard work of behavior change. We’ll explore the mindsets and physiology of the Stages of Change.

Following this session, participants will be able to:

  1. describe mindset and physiology associated with different phases of the Transtheoretical Model (TTM)/Stages of Change.
  2. determine strategies to cultivate empathy with the mindset and physiology associated with various phases of the Stages of Change.
  3. identify wellness strategies aligned with the mindset and physiology associated with behavior change as outlined in the Stages of Change.
