Database of behaviour change expertise at UCL
To facilitate behaviour change research at UCL and with external partners, we are creating a database of behaviour change expertise at UCL. If you would like to be listed, please complete this short online questionnaire about your expertise and interests.
MSc in Behaviour Change
We are currently developing a cross-disciplinary MSc in Behaviour Change, which we hope to be able to offer at UCL in 2016. Would you be interested in a programme like this? Tell us what you think! Click here to complete the survey.
Theories and Models of Behaviour Change: How useful are they?

There is a general consensus that designing and evaluating interventions to change behaviour are strengthened by drawing on theory. However, disciplines have differing views about what makes for a "good" theory and how they are best applied.
To explore this further, we hosted a panel discussion, sponsored by UCL's Grand Challenge of Human Wellbeing, with three leading figures from three UCL Faculties:
- Professor Anthony Finkelstein, Professor of Software Systems Engineering and Dean of the Faculty of Engineering Science
- Professor Kate Jeffery, Professor of Behavioural Neuroscience, Faculty of Brain Sciences
- Professor Robert West, Professor of Health Psychology, Faculty of Population Sciences
The event was chaired by Professor Susan Michie, Director of UCL's Centre for Behaviour Change.
In brief contributions, followed by a general discussion, the speakers addressed the following questions:
- What is the purpose of using a theory or model?
- What is a good theory or model?
- Which theories or models do you use?

Book launch and networking reception
The event was followed by a reception and launch of the newly published book "ABC of Behaviour Change Theories" by Susan Michie, Robert West, Rona Campbell, Jamie Brown and Heather Gainforth, which details 83 theories identified in a cross-disciplinary review led by Susan Michie at UCL and Rona Campbell at the University of Bristol.
