Abstract:

Describes and evaluates techniques for the automatic detection of statements of self-evaluation during psychotherapy sessions. Reports that data consisted of a nine-session case, that a verbatim record was performed using computer programs, and that 83 of the 268 sentences detected were judged relevant to self-evaluation. Classifies the reasons for spurious detections and failures of detection, and suggests method of alleviating them. Reports that this study demonstrates the potential value of groups of content words for the detection of psychological dimensions from transcripts of interview or group meetings. States that work is underway for the formulation of detection formats for other psychological dimensions of transcripts. Author
