Article
Full-text available
Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a group of rare genetic diseases characterized by skin fragility. As, at least for now, there is no cure for EB yet, quality of life is an extremely important issue. The WHO (World Health Organisation) defines quality of life as "the individual's perception of their position in life, in the context of the culture and v...

Full-text available
Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a group of rare diseases characterized by skin fragility. As indicated in previous research, EB has an enormous impact on all aspects of psychosocial life. Hence, quality of life is an important measure in psychological as well as in clinical research. However, quality of life is highly influenced by individual percept...
Article
Full-text available
To explore the experiences of depthpsychology orientated therapists in a set of body orientated self-awareness seminars, a group discussion with the participants were conducted and analysed. The self-awareness seminar itself is a perfect technique to understand the highly complex processes of the therapeutic impact, which leads to a deeper underst...
Article
Full-text available
Combining different methodical backgrounds has the potential to be highly enriching, but doing so, the therapist needs to face additional challenges: When to apply which method? How to design transitions? When to choose simultaneity? And what to particularly pay attention at? The following article shares experiences made within the inter-method fie...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Language analyses reveals crucial information about an individual’s current state of mind. Maladaptive psychological functioning appears in cognition, emotional experience and behaviour. In the time of the internet of things, a vast number of text and speech is available; subsequently, the interest in the automated detection of psychological functi...
Thesis
One of the great challenges in user modelling is the question how to gain personal information about the user. Of course, the most direct way is to ask him or her. Nevertheless, this option is not much appreciated by the user: It takes time and effort to fill in questionnaires and the user might quickly get a feeling of being kept from his or her o...
Thesis
The vocabulary of perception has mostly been studied in partial aspects. Whereas research in this field has led to a number of isolated publications, these studies mainly focus on one particular sensory system and, furthermore, on one particular part of speech. The present study provides the compilation of a comprehensive vocabulary of perception f...
Article
Full-text available
A substantial proportion of user modeling research deals with detection, classification and use of as well as adaptation to the users' preferences. In this paper, we develop a questionnaire to assess aspects of perceptual preferences in regard to information processing, knowledge gain and learning, named Perceptual Preferences Questionnaire (PPQ)....
Article
Full-text available
Text mining on a lexical basis is quite well developed for the English language. In compounding languages, however, lexicalized words are often a combination of two or more semantic units. New words can be built easily by concatenating existing ones, without putting any white spaces in between. That poses a problem to existing search algorithms: Su...
Article
Full-text available
Learning strategies are typically tested in rather conventional test settings, using questionnaires or observation as a method of information acquisition. However, such conventional test settings are far from the test taker's everyday life situation and might therefore evoke stress. Embedding a learning strategies test into an educational computer...
Article
Full-text available
Many recent studies have shown that educational games are effective tools for learning [1]. Despite the recent popularity of game-based learning and some first general guidelines for the creation of such educational games [2], there is a lack of useful practical guidelines for specific game types that address all relevant aspects of design, impleme...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
According to psycholinguistic research, any text contains a lot of implicit information about its writer. The Internet provides an incredible amount of text produced by users. The information potential of texts that can be directly linked to a user (which is especially the case for forum and blog posts) is not yet sufficiently examined. Natural lan...
Chapter
Full-text available
One aspect of user preference, which is of high interest especially for the field of e-learning, concerns the mode of presenting information: What sensory system(s) should be addressed to make information interesting and easy to understand for the user? The answer might be found when looking at the user's perceptual preferences. To test the user wo...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A new method for user modeling is examined, assuming that the information on the individual perceptual preference is encoded in every text the user is producing; the choice of expression may be considered as the cue.
Article
Recent research results on communication science mention a relation between the interlocutor's perceptional preferences, his or her mental representations and his or her choice of expressions. However, there is not any tool for analyzing such. In my research I combined lexical with computational linguistic methods to develop a software prototype th...

Project
Integrating body oriented methods into psychotherapy and psychosocial counselling leads to more intense experience and more sustainable change. This project focuses thus on inter-methodic research of body orientation in psychotherapy and psychosocial counselling.
Project
The definition of treatment success is highly influenced by medical criteria. However, these outcome measures fall short in the case of rare diseases, where the responsible patient can be considered as an expert for his or her individual case. Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a rare disease characterized by skin fragility. In this project, we focus on patient relevant outcomes of long-term medical and sociopsychological treatment for patients with EB in order to find what matters most for increasing their quality of life.
