Abstract

A simple, inexpensive video-recording system was designed to provide raw data for the evaluation of therapist interview behaviors in the out-patient clinic. The system uses a combination of commercially available cameras, lenses, and recording equipment which do not require technical audio-video expertise to operate. Video-casette recordings are produced that contain full-face, head-and-shoulders images of both the therapist and the patient. An automatic search control terminal rapidly locates any point on the video-cassette for review. Using normal clinic lighting and little space, the system is easily installed in any existing clinic examination room. A description of the system's use in examinating the counseling and interviewing skills of a medical clinic staff is presented.
