‘Introduction to Behaviour Change’ – Free training

On Wednesday 28 July (1-4pm) the Behaviour Change Unit will be running a free virtual training session for all HCC colleagues interested in behavioural science and how it can be applied to our work – ‘Introduction to Behaviour Change’.

Many of the outcomes we seek to achieve in HCC rely on people changing their behaviour. Human behaviour is complex and changing behaviour is neither simple nor easy. The evidence shows that patterns of behaviour are deeply embedded in people's social and material circumstances, and their cultural context. This course will introduce you to some of the factors that influence behaviour and useful models and approaches to achieve behaviour change. Taking an interactive approach, there will be a number of exercises and scenarios that will give you an opportunity to reflect on your current practice and how applying behavioural science can help you improve outcomes.

To reserve your place please contact Wayne Bateman, Behavioural Science Specialist: wayne.bateman1@hertfordshire.gov.uk.
