Background and Aims:
Analysis of the psychotherapeutical process is a laborious task involving a large number of complexly related parameters and variables. Classical descriptive and test statistics can only insufficiently describe the multifacorial and multilayered transcations. Our project aims to visualize process variables of single and group therapies in order to make the course of psychotherapy intra- and interindividually comparable.
We develped LINK-VIS, a computer program that visulaizes up to 13 variables within one glyph using Chernoff faces and related parallel coordinates and scatter plots. The data are derived from psychodiagnostic tools that are deployed before, during and after therapy. The program consists of various modules that allow for data input, interactive data selection, mapping and display.
We used the data collected in CBT group therapy of girls with AN for exploring the functionality and power of LINK-VIS and present examples of predictor and process analysis.
LINK-VIS is a powerful tool for analyzing tpsychotherapeutic processes. It facilitates cognition and allow for a more intuitive and deeper level of understanding.
