XXXIII Sunbelt Social Networks Conference of the International Network for Social Network Analysis (INSNA), 21-26 May 2013, Hamburg, Germany
Social Network Approaches for Behavior Change
University of Southern California
LIMITED to 30 Seats
This workshop introduces the many ways that social networks influence individual and network-level behaviors. It also provides a brief introduction to analytic approaches for understanding network influences on behaviors. Then we review existing evidence for the utility of using social network data for behavior change in a variety of settings including health behaviors and organizational performance. The workshop presents a typology of network interventions and reviews existing evidence on the effectiveness of network interventions. (Students familiar with the R environment may follow an R script written to demonstrate the 24 or so tactical interventions presented.) The workshop will be conducted by Tom Valente who has been developing and implementing network based interventions for over 10 years. No pre-requisites.
There are MANY other workshops that I will do not have room to list…Please direct any inquiries/questions to the registration website for further details.
