NCTI’s Complete Behavior Change System provides you with a support structure that makes a referring professional’s work more effective, strengthens program fidelity, and enhances learning by clients.
The Complete Behavior Change System is composed of five segments:
NCTI’s model of cognitive behavior change works because we focus on the internal motivators of values and personal attitudes.
The NCTI approach focuses on intrinsic change. Intrinsic change is different than extrinsic change which simply tells a person of the adverse consequences of a certain behavior. Intrinsic change helps a participant see the personal benefits of new behaviors and motivates through the participant’s own vision of improved benefit. Intrinsic change is more effective and much longer-lasting because it is internal motivation, rather than instruction from an external source.
NCTI believes change can happen quickly. NCTI’s approach has proven that once a participant becomes aware of the need to change, commits to change, and learns the skills necessary to affect new behavior, change can happen quickly. There are, of course, some behaviors that are harder than others to extinguish, and there are new skills that are difficult for some participants to master. But even complex behavior change can take place in a matter of weeks, rather than months or years.What most participants need is to be shown a better way to behave and to be provided with skills to behave in that way.
NCTI has found that working in groups is a more effective format for change to occur. Participants can see others changing, they can see successes in others that motivate them to attempt change, they draw reinforcement from others, and they can celebrate successes with other participants. Changing behavior is easier when it is done with others.
By incorporating the National Institute of Corrections’ Eight Key Principles of Effective Interventions NCTI’s Complete Behavior Change System is the clear solution for any agency or organization looking to affect positive behavior change for their clients.
