why would i want to do behavioral observation research
Why would I want to do Behavioral Observation Research?
  • Actual behavior often predicts differently than self-report
  • May give leverage to get into better journals
  • May be a better fit to your research question
types of coding systems
Types of Coding Systems
  • Micro (time, thought phrases, talk turns)
  • Macro (watch entire taped segment and then rate)
  • Mutually Exclusive?
  • Sequential behavior or simultaneous behavior
    • Verbal
    • Non-verbal
types of tasks
Types of Tasks
  • High Conflict
  • Activity (tinker toy, build something, cook recipe together)
  • Discussion based
  • Event based
flourishing families tasks
Flourishing Families Tasks
  • 1st Wave
    • Marital 25 min. discussion
    • Parent-child 15 min. discussion
    • Family (parents and target child) 15 min. problem solving
  • 2nd Wave
    • Marital: 3 min. discussion of what to teach child
    • 5 min. Teach child something he/she doesn’t know
    • Parent-child 9 min. discussion
    • 15 min. family problem solving

Wave 3

    • Marital 10 min. discussion of how economic downturn affected them
    • Marital 9 minute discussion about target child
    • Parent-child 9 min. discussion
    • 5 min. family problem
  • Wave 4
    • 5 min. family problem solving
  • Wave 5
    • 5 min. family problem solving

  • Macro Coding System
  • Coder watches segment twice for each target person
  • Gives 1-9 score for each type of behavior
