The Melbourne Centre for Behaviour Change is one of the few Centres in the world with the capacity to provide an integrated approach to all aspects of behaviour change. We study a wide range of behaviours, with current or recent research projects focusing on physical activity, nutrition, weight management, smoking, vaping, alcohol use, and the management of long-term illnesses including arthritis, asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and persistent pain. We also have an interest in altruistic behaviours, especially those that contribute to protecting the health of our planet.
We are specialists in the development, implementation, and evaluation of cutting-edge, evidence-based interventions, including those delivered via digital means or groups. We adopt a person-centred approach to assist individuals in self-managing their health, and work with professionals and organisations to co-design health-enhancing policies and practices. Our comprehensive process models incorporate cognitive, emotional, and interpersonal regulation. Combined with our versatile methodological capabilities, they allow us to approach any behaviour change challenge.
