Theories and Techniques of Behavior Change Interventions
Each SIG has a unique listserv, facilitating critical networking among colleagues whose behavioral medicine interests overlap. Upon joining SBM, a member will automatically be subscribed to the listservs of the SIGs to which they join, as indicated on their Membership Application. All messages posted to listservs must adhere to the Listserv Terms and Conditions.

Special Interest Group Listserv Terms and Conditions
The SBM Listservs are intended to facilitate communication among the membership concerning scientific and administrative issues of professional interest and importance. This medium is an important forum that derives its utility from open access to information related to the scientific and professional mission of the Society. The following guidelines have been approved by the SBM Executive Committee: Listserv Terms and Conditions, as approved by the Executive Committee of SBM, December 14, 2007; updated September 2008; and updated February 16, 2011.
As experience dictates, the Executive Committee will revise these guidelines from time to time. Feedback is welcome through any of the members of the Executive Committee or chairs of Special Interest Groups.
Please do not hesitate to contact the SBM Listserv Administrator with any questions or problems you might have. Administrator: Benjamin Stumpf, Program Manager, Society of Behavioral Medicine, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Interest Group Blog
The SBM Special Interest Group (SIG) blog was a tool used to showcase research being done by SIG members, to raise awareness on specific issues, or to address changes in policy or practice related to each SIG. Most of the SBM SIGs contributed to the SIG blog. Read the SIG Blog entries.
