Story-Editing (or, The Qualitative-est Data)

Story-editing is a simple technique that can be used to encourage individual behavior change.  This piece from Timothy Wilson also succintly characterizes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a concept that, admittedly, was almost incomprehensible to me in a number of CHE or CHE-adjacent courses.  From a public health perspective, I enjoyed the thought that studies could be designed to gather data on motivation to change in order to increase the effectiveness of public health intervention on a given issue.  Then I got to thinking about how qualitative and messy that data would be to analyze and gave up.  Sue me, I’m a chemist!
