The Stages of Change group, led by Alexa Shelden, understands recovery as a process of behavior change. The group draws from a range of evidence-based psychological theories and approaches to understanding and measuring how people change. This model understands change based on three dimensions: the stages, processes, and markers of change. Each session will target one or more change process or strategy, and group members will be encouraged to work together in developing these skills. The group will then work to build internal motivation for and to implement positive change.
