Seeking CBSM research that includes the behavior selection stage
2021-07-17 13:14:37 UTCDear colleagues,
My collaborators and I are conducting a literature review of CBSM research to evaluate the use of the first stage of CBSM: behavior selection. We are particularly interested in any work that is unpublished.
Do you have a behavior change project that you started by considering multiple behaviors? If yes, how did you evaluate those behaviors to decide which to focus on?
I would be grateful to learn about the details of your project, and/or to receive any written report you may have. Please reach out at email@example.com with any questions.
