Centre for Behaviour Change

A key task in developing behaviour change interventions is to answer the question of who and what should we focus our intervention on in order to achieve our goal. Behaviours form parts of interacting systems that evolve over time, and the choice of behavioural and population targets can usefully be informed by modelling the causal influences in those systems: a process that can be described as behavioural systems mapping. This module takes participants through the principles of systems thinking, how they can be applied to behavioural systems through methods of behavioural systems mapping, and how to analyse and interpret behavioural systems maps. It equips participants with the knowledge and skills required to begin to create and use behavioural systems maps using freely available software.

The module is interactive and includes practical sessions in which participants can work together to familiarise themselves with both the principles and practice of creating behavioural systems maps.
