Principles & Strategies
Provide step-by-step instructions
Offer workshops or trainings on a behavior
Provide resources that contain how-to knowledge on a behavior
Build awareness and understanding
Provide informational forums, meetings, or materials that fill knowledge gaps about a behavior and its importance
Give feedback on performing a behavior
Information is not always a prerequisite for people to do a behavior. While it may seem like a necessary part of any solution, there are behavioral interventions that work without people knowing what a behavior is or why it is important. In other cases information may be necessary but not sufficient for motivating a behavior.
