The Power of Choice

Welcome to a basic tips video brought to you by Aptus Treatment Centre and Mackenzie Health’s Centre for Behaviour Health Sciences. In this video, we’re going to look at the power of choice and how such a simple strategy can have a huge impact on behaviour.

This video will show you how offering choices, for many different people in various settings, can have a powerful impact on behaviour and most importantly the individual’s quality of life. Through the use of very common examples, we will show you how offering choices does not need to be difficult or complicated and can be done quite easily in your work or home setting.

These tips and tricks can be used in many different settings and we encourage you to share this video with anyone who might benefit from them.
