Use and usability: are theories of behaviour change practical?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Theoretical models have considerable potential for reducing muddle, enhancing models and guiding ‘meddling’ in the process of behaviour change. But is there a gap between current ‘use’ and potential ‘usability’? There may be nothing quite so practical as a good theory, but only if the good theoretical model is used well in practice
