Using social norms to improve health related outcomes

Social norms is an evidence based approach to promoting positive behaviour change in young people.

This event is suitable for staff working in primary, secondary and FE education settings.

Recent research demonstrates that normative education is a highly important positive influence on knowledge and behaviour change. It also provides opportunities within the curriculum to address attitude development and discuss what influences young people’s decision making.

It is an approach particularly well suited to Wiltshire, where we have many examples of healthy norms.

This course will enable participants to implement a social norms approach in their school to promote positive behaviour change.
