Which stage of the Transtheoretical Model of Change do you think Sean is in? Explain

your answer.

The Transtheoretical Model of Change helps to track the stages of change of a substance abuser

(M5 Lecture ). According to the Transtheoretical Model of Change there are five stages of

change and these are precontemplation stage, contemplation stage, preparation stage, action stage

and maintenance stage. Seon appears to be between the precontemplation and the contemplation

stage. He is not directly acknowledging the problem, but still he is contemplating his lack of

involvelent and is feeling guilty. So, he is understanding that there is an issue because of his

substance abuse and still he is just rationalizing it or minimizing the impact of his behaviour by

accepting that he is not directly involved (M5 Lecture).

o Do you believe that Sean feels guilty? Why or why not?

Yes, Sean is feeling guilty because he accepts that he has guilt feelings as he is not involved

directly in the responsibilities of helping at home and for not participating in the family

activities.
