The post "Hack Your Brain to Use Cravings To Your Advantage" on the Lifehacker blog got me thinking: How many of you get students involved in using psychological principles/theories to "change" something about themselves? I know this could be thin ice and we need to be careful (including parent permissions? some kind of "IRB-like" review?) but it could be a very powerful learning experience for students.

The only activity I did with students that is similar at all is "Habits and Perspectives" : Students pick a personal habit they want to change, analyze their behavior from different psychological perspectives, and design a plan to change their behavior based on one or more of the perspectives.

Anyone else do anything similar? Good idea? Dangerous idea?
