Ke/so-H/cfcs Marital Counseling Moves Into Computer Age CHARLES D.SCHOFFNER DES MOINES (UPI) Marriage counseling, like just about everything else these days, is moving Into the computer age. ' Des Moines-based GMI, Inc., has developed 'a - computer program that can help marriage counselors, clergy and other clinicians pinpoint problems in a marriage and guide the couple toward a solution. The computer accomplishes its task by sorting out the words a couple uses in answering a questionnaire. A counselor then uses'the printout to help the couple analyze the strengths and weaknesses of their marriage. Charles Cleveland. GMI president, said the computer program is based on the concept that certain words or phrases indicate distinctive behavior patterns. Cleveland said the relationship between language and attitude has been researched extensively and field testing has given the GMI system — called Marital Climate Inventory — an accuracy rating of 92 per cent. "We're not in the business of •telling a couple they should or shouldn't get a divorce. That's not what the tool tells us," said Cleveland, a professor of sociology at Drake University and a practicing marriage counselor. "The tool tells us those areas in a marriage that are well worked through and those areas that are soft. It also Is diagnostic in that it can help' find .solutions to certain problems." The process begins with a couple answering 58 questions that focus on nine areas — love, sex, money, relatives, communication, religion, selfishness, children and freedom. Some examples: "Describe several situations in-which you, intentionally or unintentionally, were hurtful to your partner in the last month; give the ways you and your husband (wife) differ: describe how important decisions are reached in your marriage." The responses, which provide about 1,000 words for analysis, are fed into the computer. which has a program of 15,000 commonly used words. Cleveland said the computer examines the word usage, then indicates how strongly the, couple is focusing in 40 altitude categories which -have been shown io predict the strengths and weaknesses of marriages,, For example, one such category Is control; which has a word base that includes insist, allow, permit and require. If a person uses words in that category often. Cleveland said, he or she is probably the type ^who focuses on someone "being in charge of the situation." The computer also shows how partners compare in the types of behavior suggested by their word usage, The degree of difference is shown in the computer printout; ; Although the computer does^ not actually analyze the marriage, Cleveland said it does Show if a marriage has characteristics of a stable, strained or destructive relationship. "The computer analyzes the words and 'tells where 'the couple is al -In certain areas." Cleveland said. "The, clinician has to analyze the results.-We ; have a manual that goes with it <to explain how to use the system and interpret (he printout." A counselor could sort out the words and chart, the results manually, but the computer can perform the 'function much faster and at a, lower cost. "I had to do U^once by hand, v Cleveland said. "It -lakes the computer 5.6 seconds to do an analysis. It took me 14' •• days." Cleveland, said the .computer system also is used for premarital counseling and in the future may be used lo help diagnose family problems, In pre-marilal counseling, he said,' the computer can point out problems in a relationship that could-disrupt a marriage if not resolved.
