Submission deadline: Friday 29th June, 2012

Submissions are invited for the workshop on, “People, Computers, and
Psychotherapy,” which will be run in conjunction with BCS HCI 2012
(http://hci2012.bcs.org/index.html) in Birmingham, UK in September
2012.

There is an urgent and identified need for technology-led
interventions for common mental health problems. The successful
delivery of such technology has huge potential to impact the health
and wellbeing of millions of people in the UK alone. However, the
design of technology to facilitate and deliver psychotherapy is a
complex multidisciplinary challenge, requiring expertise from fields
such as HCI, software design, psychology, and clinical and primary
care. There are significant and unique challenges involved in
understanding how to bring these disciplines together to create a
coherent, engaging and useful programme of therapy. This workshop is
intended to bring together a diverse cross-disciplinary community of
basic and applied researchers, to share existing knowledge, define new
opportunities and set an agenda for future research in this field. We
will explore issues that are of importance to interaction design,
those important in clinical practice, and will identify the
opportunities and challenges inherent in drawing these together.

All psychotherapy requires ubiquitous engagement on the part of the
participant. This is true regardless of the type of therapeutic
approach underlying therapy, from the highly structured approach of
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, to more narrative, humanist, or
mindfulness-influenced approaches. Therapy does not just happen during
the one hour per week consultation with a therapist, but continues
throughout the week through exercises and activities that the
participant must undertake. Interestingly, many of the features of
modern mobile and social technology appear ideal to support this
ongoing process. Modern technology allows for the pervasive sensing of
participant behaviour, from the monitoring of mood and other
biological indicators, to the measuring and logging of observed social
behaviours. It also allows for the real-time, automated analysis of
this data and the delivery of feedback to the participant. There is a
great deal of potential in this technology to support and deliver
interventions for common psychological problems.

We invite 2-4 page submissions in BCS format
(http://ewic.bcs.org/category/15364). Both completed and in-progress
work is welcome. Accepted papers will be published in the British
Computer Society's e-WIC repository.

Contributions will be welcome on a range of relevant topics, including:
•	Defining the state of the art,
•	Understanding how modern technologies, such as social and sensor
networks, and computer games, can extend the scope of traditional
mental healthcare services,
•	The potential of social media to facilitate group-based therapy,
•	The level of therapist involvement necessary, or preferable, in the
delivery of online mental healthcare,
•	The role of expert users, such as moderators, in online support for
psychotherapy,
•	Theoretical frameworks that may provide effective guidance for
design and evaluation in this area,
•	Understanding issues regarding participant recruitment for prototype
applications in this field,
•	Ethical and regulatory requirements, including possible privacy concerns
