The Development of Clinical Skills in Speech Pathology by Audiotape and Videotape Self-Confrontation. Final Report.
Boone, Daniel R.; Stech, Ernest L.
An initial study with 30 students in clinical speech pathology training found videotape confrontation to be a powerful clinical training technique. This subsequent study, using 20 additional students, was designed to compare the effectiveness of audiotape and videotape, and to ascertain whether videotape self-confrontation (single and double confrontation) increased self-awareness and insights into use of operant methodologies. The study also evaluated a previously developed therapy analysis matrix as a tool in evaluating audiotape confrontation. The results of the investigation suggest that both audiotape and videotape are effective procedures for training speech therapists, that audiotape confrontation when combined with behavioral scoring is as effective as videotape confrontation in changing verbal behavior, and that the therapy analysis matrix appears to be a useful tool in evaluating the taped therapy sessions. A bibliography is appended, as well as additional material concerning the research methodology. (JY)
