In prescribing and delivering an exercise or health program, the use of best-practice behavioural strategies that align with the unique needs of the client is essential for effective practice. This is consistent with the professional standards of many accreditation bodies, including those for Exercise Science. This unit aims to provide students with concrete, evidence-based skills and strategies for promoting behaviour change in health and exercise. These include theory and research-driven interventions for promoting motivation for change, and for promoting commitment to healthier lifestyles.
