Text Network Visualization for Psychotherapy
Mental disorders and various self-imposed psychological obstacles often arise because of the lack of choice. Gregory Bateson wrote about the double-bind origin of schizophrenic behavior where “crazy” reaction is simply a way of transcending a limiting situation, when the person sees no other choice. Various psychotherapeutic practices focus on expanding the range of possibilities for the patient, offering more choices than is currently available. Text network visualization can be a useful tool to aid this process. In this case study we are going to demonstrate how it works.
