Couple Observational Coding Systems by Patricia K. Kerig, Donald H. Baucom

By Patricia K. Kerig, Donald H. Baucom

A better half quantity to relations Observational Coding platforms, this publication strikes from the triad to the dyad and gives a exhibit for major advancements within the coding of intimate couple interactions. The desire is this ebook will give a contribution to the broadening and deepening of the sector via disseminating details either in regards to the coding platforms which have been built, in addition to the conceptual and methodological matters considering couple observational examine. the 1st 3 chapters current overviews of conceptual and methodological matters within the examine of couple strategies. the remainder chapters describe contributions to the sector through sixteen groups of researchers. each one bankruptcy offers information regarding the conceptual underpinnings and constitution of the coding approach built via the authors and proof for its psychometric homes. Couple Observational Coding platforms can be of curiosity to researchers learning couple interactions in addition to clinicians who paintings with undefined.

Thus, whereas the Observer system can grossly underestimate coder agreement by counting too many codes as disagreements, the GSEQ system can overestimate agreement somewhat if a new coder tends to insert additional codes. If overcoding is suspected to be a problem, an alternative approach with the GSEQ system is to reverse the order of entry of the criterion codes and the new coder's codes so that the system searches for matches to the new coder's codes within the criterion set of codes. In this case, instances in which the coder inserted additional codes would have no match, and thus would be counted as disagreements.

COUPLES OBSERVATIONAL RESEARCH 23 nonlinearly but catastrophically; a small input can disrupt an ongoing process in a major (disproportionate), nonlinear way. , 1995; Gottman, Swanson, & Murray, 1999), couple researchers have not generally taken advantage of such approaches. Interestingly, DS methodology has been applied in a number of developmental psychology studies involving parent-child interaction. This approach is understandable given the centrality of change in this intellectual pursuit and the awareness that developmental change is not always linear in nature (cf.

Currently, it is common practice for investigators to calculate coder agreement statistics, such as percent agreement or kappa, for each observation session, then report the mean and ranges of these values in the presentation of the findings. However, with the exception of single case designs, we are often interested in reliably detecting variability in behaviors across couples rather than variability within couples. An average of the coders' agreements within each couple may not accurately reflect their agreement about differences among couples.
