SBCC ─ the name of the game

World-over, SBCC is increasingly playing a critical role in advancing development goals.

SBCC signals a shift from sporadic, awareness-raising IEC activities to evidence-based behaviour change communication (BCC) strategies, integrating advocacy to influence policy and structural issues.

SBCC programmes increase knowledge, influence attitudes, social and cultural norms and produce changes in a wide variety of behaviours in community and individuals.

New Concept has enriched course content with appropriate job aids and exercises based on its wide experience in developing and implementing communication strategies and tools across the development sector.

Hands-on exposure to SBCC skills and knowledge gained after this two-day training can be gainfully employed by participants in their programmes. The training gives participants an overview and familiarises them with the determinants that have shaped development communication over the years. It presents aspects with their roots in structural, cognitive and behavioural theories, which underpin change communication theories and practice today. The participants learn the connections of these models to various development theories and how communication models and analysis tools provide the feedback loop.

The skills and knowledge gained by this training can not only be useful in flagship programmes on health, nutrition, education, WASH and other areas, but also help students, educators, employees dealing with CSR activities in the private sector, civil services officials and aspirants and others, who truly wish to understand how they can influence change in communities and individuals, which in turn helps transform society.
