Lorencatto, F., West, R., Seymour, N. and Michie, S. (2013). Developing a method for specifying the components of behavior change interventions in practice: the example of smoking cessation. Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 81(3), pp. 528-544. doi: 10.1037/a0032106

Abstract

There is a difference between interventions as planned and as delivered in practice. Unless we know what was actually delivered, we cannot understand "what worked" in effective interventions. This study aimed to (a) assess whether an established taxonomy of 53 smoking cessation behavior change techniques (BCTs) may be applied or adapted as a method for reliably specifying the content of smoking cessation behavioral support consultations and (b) develop an effective method for training researchers and practitioners in the reliable application of the taxonomy.
