Principle 10: Promote Helping Relationships and Engage Role Models Support from the referring physician as well as program staff, family, friends, and successful graduates of the program is a critical component in any behavior change process. Staff can encourage social support by allowing spouses, other family members, or friends who are a positive influence to participate in the program (for example, by coattending educational sessions). Before enlisting the help of family or friends, health professionals are cautioned to take note of the relationship between the significant others and the patient.

Most people who relapse at a later stage do not return to precontemplation. •• Lapse and relapse: It is important for health professionals to counsel their patients that experiencing a lapse (a temporary slip, such as a discontinuation of a behavior) is a common and normal part of behavior change. Lapsed behavior does not necessarily lead to relapse (a long-term discontinuation of the behavior). Patients who lapse or relapse should be encouraged not to view this as a failure but rather as an opportunity to learn and try new strategies.

During the change process, health professionals must also be able to adjust over time since the balance of these factors may change during the course of treatment. Principle 2: Recognize That Knowledge Is Necessary but Not Sufficient for Behavior Change It is critical for CR/SP professionals to ensure that patients have the requisite knowledge of behavioral factors that increase their risk of a secondary event or procedure and ways to effectively prevent or reduce that risk. Knowledge gain (learning what to do and how to do it) is a component of many health behavior change models.
