Amity’s Models of Practice
Public Health Model
The Public Health Model, which argues a systems approach, blends nicely with our philosophy, due to its emphasis on the interaction between the drug or activity, the individual, and the environment. In other words, the lifestyle or pattern of behaviour, the person, and their living conditions are considered.
The Transtheoretical Model (Stages of Change)
The Transtheoretical Model is a model of intentional change. This model focuses on the decision making of the individual. It is a theoretical model of behaviour change, which has been the basis for developing effective interventions to promote behaviour change. The model describes how people modify a problem behaviour or acquire a positive behaviour.
