Evaluating the use of an artificial intelligent based support for psychological therapy
While highlighting studies that demonstrate technologies as being highly valuable tools for therapists, this research involves the use of Artificial Intelligence for the ultimate aim of designing a programme specifically for therapists to use to conduct additional methods of therapy. Using a mixed method design, a total of 130 qualified therapists from Ireland, European, and other International countries, were asked to complete an online survey. Wanberg et al’s (2007) e-Therapy Scale, Liaw’s (2002) Computer Attitude Scale, Web Attitude Scale, and 3 Artificial Intelligence questions were asked and combined to evaluate the attitude of participants towards the use of an Artificial Intelligence based support designed for therapy. A range of correlations were found between a number of variables within this study which further highlights the growing interests and ranging attitudes of the use of technology within healthcare.
