Decision making/change constructs

Stephen Soldz and I are involved in a study using the rep grid to
assess change in constructs during psychotherapy. One of the aspects we
want to look at are people's constructs regarding decision making and/or
personal change. Has anyone done this type of work before? If so, what
elements did you use and what types of constructs emerged?

I was initially thinking of asking people to list important transitions
in their lives, filter out those that were self-initiated, and use these
as the elements in a grid.

Any feedback/pointers to existing literature would be appreciated.
