With this charming reflection from Warner Slack, who programmed the first computer to interview a patient in 1965, Isaac Marks and coauthors Kate Cavanagh and Lina Gega begin their welcome monograph on computer-aided psychotherapy. Slack’s gentle irony bears witness that more than 40 years of experience and research on patient-computer interviews has not overcome all resistance to machines’ performing clinician functions. Marks, Cavanagh, and Gega review the use of computer interviews at the extreme end of the clinician-patient spectrum—psychotherapy.
