In particular, the segment-level quality scores are initialized with the session-level scores and we model the global quality as a function of the local quality scores to achieve the accurate segment-level quality estimates.
In this work, we propose a BERT-based model for automatic behavioral scoring of a specific type of psychotherapy, called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), where prior work is limited to frequency-based language features and/or short text excerpts which do not capture the unique elements involved in a spontaneous long conversational interaction.

With the growing prevalence of psychological interventions, it is vital to have measures which rate the effectiveness of psychological care to assist in training, supervision, and quality assurance of services.
Learning such transformations is challenging and requires a deep understanding of empathy while maintaining conversation quality through text fluency and specificity to the conversational context.
We develop a novel unifying theoretically-grounded framework for characterizing the communication of empathy in text-based conversations.
We propose a novel method to augment the word-based features with the utterance level tags for subsequent CBT code estimation.
The DAN-LPE simultaneously trains a domain adversarial net and processes label proportions estimation by the confusion of the source domain and the predictions of the target domain.
Specifically, we address the problem of providing real-time guidance to therapists with a dialogue observer that (1) categorizes therapist and client MI behavioral codes and, (2) forecasts codes for upcoming utterances to help guide the conversation and potentially alert the therapist.
We find that our proposed measure is correlated with the therapist's empathy towards their patient in Motivational Interviewing and with affective behaviors in Couples Therapy.
We propose a methodology for estimating human behaviors in psychotherapy sessions using mutli-label and multi-task learning paradigms.
