Assignment – Week 8

Stages of Change Application

The Stages of Change Model (also referred to as the “Transtheoretical Model” or “TTM”) is a widely accepted and empirically supported process construct that describes both the manner and mechanisms of change. It is not a substitute for treatment theory, but rather an overlay to a chosen clinical approach that can aid the counselor in client conceptualization and effective treatment delivery. It can also help clinicians adapt interventions to align with the client’s stage in the change process and offers insights into how to enhance motivation and engagement.

In this Assignment, you will analyze the Stages of Change Model and how you can operationalize it as an overlay to your own preferred treatment theory.

Complete a 3- to 4-page paper in which you do the following:

· Provide an overview of the stages of change model. Include ways to determine a client’s stage in the change process.

· Identify at least one challenge and one potential intervention for each of the stages of change, based on a theoretical approach of your choice.

· Justify your response with specific references to this week’s Learning Resources and the current literature.
