Assessment details:

You are required to interview a person who has experienced a health challenge or who is engaging in behaviours that may negatively affect their health – this could be a consumer in the healthcare context or a person in the community. Present your assessment as a case study with a reflective component. You may use subheadings within your assessment (no bullet points, graphs or lists).

Your submission should address the following:

  • Provide a brief overview of the Transtheoretical ‘stages of change’ Model
  • Identify the person’s health challenge or behaviour and explore the person’s motivation to address their health challenge or behaviour using the Transtheoretical Model
  • Explore the techniques you have used in your motivational interview towards discussing the person’s health challenge or behaviours.
  • Evaluate your progress – consider the impact of the motivational interview on the interviewee’s choices regarding their health challenge or behaviour.
  • Provide an in-depth reflection of your learning and development in conducting this activity and consider how you might develop your interpersonal and communication skills in your future practice.

You should include at least eight (8) academic references to support your assessment.
