Analyzing Sequential Interaction Data: Two Empirical Studies.
Wackman, Daniel B.; Miller, Sherod
Systems descriptions vary in two essential ways. First, they vary in terms of the kinds of behaviors used in describing the system. Second, they vary in terms of the way the data are handled. The analysis of interaction patterns in dyads, groups, and larger systems has been difficult to describe. In this paper, an attempt is made to present a viable method for describing verbal communication patterns of married couples' interaction. This method is demonstrated through two empirical studies; the first study analyzes the stability of interaction patterns of married couples over a two-year period; the second study compares couples involved in counseling with couples not involved in counseling. The implications of the methodology for future research are discussed. (RB)
