Summary of the paper

Title Annotating Reflections for Health Behavior Change Therapy
Authors Nishitha Guntakandla and Nielsen Rodney
Abstract We present our work on annotating reflections, an essential counselor behavioral code in motivational interviewing for psychotherapy on conversations that are a combination of casual and therapeutic dialogue. We annotated all the therapists’ utterances from ten transcripts spanning more than five hours of conversation with Complex Reflection, Simple Reflection, or No Reflection. We also provide insights into corpus quality and code distributions. The corpus that we constructed and annotated in this effort is a vital resource for automated health behavior change therapy via a dialogue system. As the on-going work, additional conversations are being annotated at least by one annotator.
