For the purposes of identifying storytellers, participants will work in small groups to form a mock Story Development Group. Instructors will provide a list of potential intervention topics, which may be chosen or modified based on the groups' interest. The groups will cover the content relevant to the study or intervention and also design the questions to be answered in a narrative style, which helps to identify individuals that have interesting and relevant material to share and also communicate their stories eloquently.
