    ABSTRACT: Alcoholics were exposed to behavior counseling alone (N =10), or behavior counseling with either videotape self-confrontation (N = 10) or role-modeling (N = 10), and compared to alcoholics receiving standard inpatient treatment (N =10). Immediate alternation of drinking topographies and posttreatment follow-up drinking dispositions served as dependent variables. Subjects receiving videotape self-confrontation achieved greater positive changes in posttreatment drinking analysis sessions than did other treatment groups. Follow-up probes suggested superiority of the experimental treatments in general, and particularly videotape self-confrontation. Performance in the posttreatment analysis sessions was predictive of follow-up drinking status (p less thann .05).

    ABSTRACT: Reviews the uses of videotape playback and related methods of self-confrontation in psychotherapy. This procedure has been used in group therapy (especially when the major group operation is feedback), behavior therapy, family and marital therapy, and in psychoanalytically oriented individual therapy. Methodological variations in the application are cited, involving several issues (e.g., concealment of camera, time to replay the tape, and length of a replay segment). It is concluded that self-confrontation via videotape is efficacious, helps eliminate distortion, and adds humanness to therapy. (62 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
