Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change- Listen to Ways To Be Better At The Things You Want To Do Today and …For Your Life™

Transtheoretical model of behavior change

The transtheoretical model of behavior change assesses an individual’s readiness to act on a new healthier behavior, and provides strategies, or processes of change to guide the individual through the stages of change to Action and Maintenance. It is composed of the following constructs: stages of change, processes of change, self-efficacy, decisional balance and temptations.

The transtheoretical model of behavior change is also known by the abbreviation “TTM”[1] and by the term “stages of change.”[2][3] A popular book, Changing for Good,[4] and articles in the news media[5][6][7][8][9] have discussed the model. It is “arguably the dominant model of health behaviour change, having received unprecedented research attention, yet it has simultaneously attracted criticism.”[10]

  • Precontemplation (Not Ready)-“People are not intending to take action in the foreseeable future, and can be unaware that their behaviour is problematic”
  • Contemplation (Getting Ready)-“People are beginning to recognize that their behavior is problematic, and start to look at the pros and cons of their continued actions”
  • Preparation (Ready)-“People are intending to take action in the immediate future, and may begin taking small steps toward behaviour change”[nb 1]
  • Action – “People have made specific overt modifications in modifying their problem behaviour or in acquiring new healthy behaviours”
  • Maintenance – “People have been able to sustain action for at least six months and are working to prevent relapse”
  • Termination – “Individuals have zero temptation and they are sure they will not return to their old unhealthy habit as a way of coping”[nb 2]
