I first came across the model in my work on alcohol counselling. While I
like the dynamic approach it proposes I always felt uneasy about the
assumption that "relapse" was a definate stage one progressed through
before finally reaching a steady changed state.

Certainly I think that there are some similarities at a conceptua l level
between the SCM and the Kellyian CPC cycle (which I beleive is an extremely
useful tool in change management).

good luck
