Enabling lifestyle behaviour change in your communities - a practical introduction
Introduction: Our health and well being status is determined by our lifestyle behaviours. Improvements in the 'Big 4' lifestyle behaviours (physical activity, healthy eating, smoking and alcohol consumption) can improve well-being and reduce the risk of most long-term conditions. Yet, ensuring that people who would benefit from changing their behaviour the most, actually achieve change, can be a challenge. At Norwich Institute of Healthy Ageing (NIHA) we believe in offering colleagues across community facing roles a keen insight into behaviour change concepts and practical strategies to support behaviour change. By introducing practitioners to strategies for helping service users achieve behaviour change, we hope they will be empowered to engage in conversations with the people and communities accessing services
Workshop audience: Invites are open to healthcare professionals, researchers, local government representatives, community and voluntary organisations, clinicians, third sector professionals, housing officers and students who are looking for ways to apply behavioural science or health psychological theory to their work and for the people and communities they serve; for example Healthcare providers, innovators and entrepreneurs, vulnerable groups, isolated communities or local government initiatives.
The workshop will be taking place at:
The King's Centre, 63 - 75 King Street, Norwich, NR1 1PH
