Supporting the Initiation and Maintenance of Behaviour Change and Weight Loss 

Speaker: Dr Stephan Dombrowski, University of Stirling


Behaviour change science has made great progress in specifying the components and mechanisms of action to help with the development of interventions that support individuals initiate behaviour change. Long-term maintenance of initiated change and change related outcomes remain one of the key challenges. This talk will outline studies which examined aspects related to the initiation and maintenance of health behaviour change, reflecting on the role of theory, techniques and formats of delivery to attempt to maximise the effectiveness of behaviour change interventions.
