Changing behaviour in systems

Behaviour is heavily influenced by context and the systems within which it is embedded. Greater understanding of how systems operate to influence behaviour can enhance the effectiveness of behaviour change interventions. This module will draw together principles of behaviour change and systems thinking to address behavioural problems within systems such as organisations and communities. Participants will be introduced to the principles of understanding behaviour in systems and how to describe and analyse this using the methodology of behavioural systems mapping.
