Referential Process Seminar: Introduction of the New Treatment Data Base Including Multi-level Process and Outcome Measures
The seminar will continue the examination of the therapy process from multiple perspectives including the participating clinician, other clinicians looking at videos and reading transcripts, and researchers applying computerized measures. Wilma Bucci will briefly outline the theory of the referential process as a common factor in psychotherapy, and review the computerized measures of the phases of the process. You Zhou will describe the data base including these measures applied to 605 sessions from 20 therapies, and representing several different therapeutic approaches. Sean Murphy will discuss the value of the data base as providing a set of norms for the measures, and its potential use in research design, and will demonstrate its application to a specific clinical question. Following this introductory meeting, subsequent meetings of the seminar will use the approach outlined here to focus on a single case; procedures for subsequent meetings will be discussed. The overall goal of the seminar is to develop interactive procedures through which clinicians and researchers can each benefit from the insights of the other.
