Academic research on 1 day interventions


Can anyone point to any academic work in peer review journals that relates to the efficacy (or otherwise) of the one day workshop in terms of the longevity of its effect/message on participants subsequent behaviours/actions?

What I'm really after is something that measures behaviour/disposition before the event and afterwards at one ore more specified intervals.

Subject matter could be any one of the usual training disciplines or even something more unusual or even non-work based such as a hobby/pastime.

Many thanks,

Tony Newton

  1. Worth of short workshops
    There is not a lot I am aware of that specifically addresses this issue. You might try

    Most of the article is on a method of designing in longer term success but it does include some criticism of most short workshop designs.
