ENDURING EFFECTS OF VIDEOTAPE PLAYBACK EXPERIENCE ON FAMILY AND MARITAL RELATIONSHIPS.
ALGER, IAN; HOGAN, PETER
VIDEOTAPE PLAYBACK EXPERIENCES IN FAMILY AND MARITAL THERAPY HAVE APPLICATION FOR RESEARCH IN LONG-TERM BEHAVIOR CHANGE. THE ENDURING INFLUENCE OF VIDEORECORDING--(1) FACILITATES A MEASUREMENT OF BEHAVIOR CHANGE, (2) CONTRIBUTES TO UNDERSTANDING THE NATURE OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR, (3) CAPTURES THE CONTEXT, CUEING, AND COMMUNICATIONAL BEHAVIORS IN AN INTERACTIONAL SITUATION, AND (4) INVOLVES THE PATIENT DEEPLY IN SELF-OBSERVATION. THE TECHNIQUES, EQUIPMENT, AND METHODS OF USE ARE DISCUSSED. LONG-RANGE OR ENDURING EFFECTS CONCERN THE EFFECTIVENESS OF REPETITIVE PLAYBACK OVER A PERIOD OF TIME, INCLUDING ADAPTATION TO CONFRONTATION AND INCREASED SENSITIVITY TO COMMUNICATION PATTERNS, AND THE RESIDUAL EFFECTS OF A SINGLE OR A CLOSELY CONNECTED SERIES OF EXPOSURES IN CHANGING BEHAVIORS, ILLUSTRATED BY EXAMPLES OF IMAGE-IMPACT. WITH 75 FAMILIES AND MARITAL COUPLES, IMMEDIATE SELF-CONFRONTATION CONTRIBUTED TO THERAPY, MADE OBJECTIVE DATA QUICKLY AVAILABLE, ENCOURAGED MORE INTENSIVE EMOTIONAL INVOLVEMENT, MADE THERAPY AN EQUAL AND COOPERATIVE ACTIVITY, CLARIFIED COMPLEX BEHAVIOR PATTERNS AND SEQUENCES, AND RELATED VERBAL AND NON-VERBAL LEVELS AND CHANNELS OF COMMUNCATION. BOTH IMMEDIATE AND RESIDUAL EFFECTS PROVIDED INSIGHTS OF A MEANINGFUL AND LASTING NATURE. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE 45TH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN ORTHOPSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION (CHICAGO, MARCH 20-23, 1968). (WR)
