A System for Describing Therapeutic Interventions.
Clement, Paul W.
A system for describing the specific elements that constitute any psychological intervention is presented. The system includes 39 operations or controlling responses which may be administered by the psychologist, the client, or both together. Varying the administration of the operations can provide over 100 source/operation elements in the coding system which can be combined in thousands of unique associations in order to make distinctive treatment packages. Definitions and examples of the operations are provided. The 39 operations consist of 8 setting events, 11 cues and prods, 3 primary behaviors, and 17 consequences. The use of the coding system is illustrated and data on inter- and intra-rater reliability are provided. (Author)
