|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.
