The Stages of Change model has been a staple of training on person-centered practices since it was first published in the early 90s. Despite being heavily linked with Motivational Interviewing, the model is often used only as a descriptive tool rather than a guide to action and effective intervention. This class describes how to identify where a person is at in their change process AND matches simple interventions that fit that stage. In this way workers can help guide people toward the changes they want to make with a minimum amount of confrontation.
