Dean Sheryl Kubiak and the Wayne State University School of Social Work are proud to host social worker, author and Wayne State MSW alum Janice M. Prochaska, PhD for an intimate discussion of the Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change also known as the Stages of Change and the use of motivational interviewing in prison and probation systems.

Seating is limited and RSVP's are requested.

One of the most published authors in the field of social work, Dr. Janice M. Prochaska has led research and development teams for health behavior and organizational change programs as the CEO at Pro-Change Behavior Systems, Inc. from 1997 – 2015.

Her collaborations include applying the Model to cutting edge issues like simultaneously reducing multiple risk behaviors and enhancing multiple domains of well-being, healthy weight management in children and adults, preventing bullying, keeping individuals out of trouble with the law, and advancing careers with populations like women scientists.

Dr. Prochaska, who holds an adjunct position at URI, earned her Master’s in Social Work from Wayne State University and her Ph.D. in Social Work Administration and Policy from Boston College. In 2013, she was recognized with an Achievement Award by the Providence Business News as one of the Outstanding Leaders in New England.
