Use of videotaped feedback in altering interpersonal perceptions of married couples: A therapy analogue

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Thirty eight young married couples participated in a therapy analogue study designed to assess the effect of focused, videotaped and verbal feedback as compared with that of verbal feedback only or of no feedback, as a means of altering interpersonal perception. The experiment followed a pretest experimental treatment posttest design, with change measured by the perspectives of interactional behavior (a modification and combination of Leary's Interpersonal Checklist and Laing's interpersonal perception method). Results indicate that videotaped feedback altered perceptions to a significantly greater degree than either of the 2 conditions, with no significant differences between the effect of verbal feedback and no feedback. The changes occurred in perspectives pertaining to the self but not those pertaining to the spouse. The implications and limitations of the results as they relate to marital and family therapy are discussed.
