Health Communication and Behavior Change Tools

Any of us who has tried to change a behavior knows that personal attitudes, beliefs, self-discipline, social relationships, cultural norms, access to resources, and often the physical environment must be negotiated in order for behavior change to occur.

With the understanding that reducing risk and improving health must address this web of personal, social and environmental factors, GHC has developed specialized tools grounded in empirical research and behavioral cognitive theory. 

Through the power of narrative and dialogue, GHC tools create context-specific educative environments that encourage learners to understand the range of influences on behavior. These tools help participants formulate lists of their own priority concerns and generate potential solutions. Both the process and the outcomes of these activities contribute to individual growth and behavior change.
