About This Registration
This event is open to the public.
Almost 20 years ago, two well-known alcoholism researchers, Carlo C. DiClemente and J. O. Prochaska, introduced a five-stage model of change to help professionals understand their clients with addiction problems and motivate them to change. Their model is based not on abstract theories but on their personal observations of how people went about modifying problem behaviors such as smoking, overeating and problem drinking.
This model has been so successful in addiction treatment that it is now applied to mental health issues including trauma. Understanding your loved one’s readiness to change by being familiar with the six-stage model of change can help you set reasonable expectations in each of the stages and cut down on your frustration as a helper.
