One of the core aims in compiling this book was to offer support or guidance to designers, design researchers and others with influence in the area of design who have an interest in creating change, in selecting the appropriate approaches in order to design for behavioural change. Part 2 (Chapters 3-13) presents a selection of currently available approaches across the plethora of often-competing epistemologies (worldviews), disciplines, theories and models that inform how change may come about via design. While each chapter makes an important contribution in its own right, we believe that the real value of Design for Behavioural Change is in reading and understanding the chapters in relation to each other. Chapters 3 and 13 therefore offer an introduction and conclusion with the purpose of framing the individual discussions in Chapters 4-12. Chapter 3 provides an overview of the different perspectives that can be brought to bear on the approaches presented in the following chapters to assist in navigating them. These include their background in the behavioural and social sciences and their integration into design, the issue of application in relation to the agency divide, and their use and contributions to designing for behaviour change. Chapter 13 offers a reflection on the similarities, connections and differences of the various approaches presented, which is summarized in form of a visual map.
