A grant that funds ongoing research in which Associate Professor Tad Hirsch is a co-investigator. This research is a collaborative project between the Division of Design and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington along with colleagues at the University of Utah and the University of Southern California.

The goal of this 5-year effort is to improve the quality of mental health counseling by providing automated visualizations of therapy sessions, for use in training, supervision, and quality assurance. The grant includes support for faculty and two graduate Research Assistant positions.
