Imagery Assessment by Means of Self-Report and Behavioral Measures.
Danaher, Brian G.; Thoresen, Carl E.
Three procedures for use in assessing imagery behavior were examined with the intent of finding a prognastic tool that would help the behavior therapist evaluate the applicability and/or the progress of an imagery intervention such as covert sensitization or implosion therapy. The authors attempted to replicate and extend portions of earlier perception studies which compared self-study include: (1) recall performance on a paired-associate learning task using imagery mediation; (2) self-reported and behavioral results from a Block Test of pattern recall; and (3) self-report data from an imagery questionnaire. The findings lead the authors to conclude that (1) the procedures examined require further evaluation before they can be used in diagnosis; and (2) the procedures should be expanded to include training in both somatic and visual sensory awareness and in techniques for assessing results. Directions for new research are noted. (Author/TL)
