Notes that health practitioners use various models for facilitating health or lifestyle change, which entails either stopping an unhealthy behavior or promoting a new healthy behavior. Four models offer evidence-based, systematic, and integrative approaches to lifestyle change. They are the Transtheoretical Model or Stages of Change; Brief Motivational Interviewing; Prevention Oriented Primary Care; and the ECBIS Psychotherapy Model (Emotion, Cognition, Behavioral, Interpersonal, and System). This article reviews each model and features a case illustration to demonstrate how these models can be integrated and applied clinically to help a patient change multiple health behaviors.
