Building motivation and monitoring behavioural change

Core Component

Building motivation and monitoring behavioural change aims to motivate a behavioural change or attitude and/or monitor and document behavioural changes over time. This core component can be used to encourage young people to consider and change otherwise risky behavioural choices, or to plan to make healthy choices that promote their socioemotional wellbeing. It may involve initial screening or personalised assessment to inform a tailored response to the individual young person. It may also include generic or personalised feedback that reinforces the behavioural change.

Flexible activities include:

Personalised assessments, screening, feedback and monitoring can all be delivered in a number of ways including online via web platforms, digitally via text messages, or in-person. Use of monitoring or tracking in conjunction with reinforcement or booster messages can allow for personalised feedback and reinforcement informed by the young person’s self-reported progress.
