An Action Agenda: Promoting the Science and Practice of Health Behavior Maintenance
Workshop #3: Interventions for Behavior Maintenance
Friday, September 22, 2023
11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. EDT

Objective: Workshop 3 aims to share the state of the science for interventions to promote behavior maintenance across behaviors, disease contexts, and populations, emphasizing innovative approaches to support and understand maintenance behaviors and processes in the context of intervention research. Particular attention will be given to addressing health equity and disparities in intervention develop.m.ent. The first half of Workshop 3 will highlight exemplar interventions for promoting behavior maintenance. While the focus of this workshop is person-based interventions to promote behavior maintenance, exa.m.ples also will explore the relative effects of multi-level interventions. The second half of the workshop will include a panel discussion highlighting gaps and opportunities to advance understanding of behavior maintenance in behavioral interventions.
