Abstract

In this paper, we present a system which is able to interact through natural dialogue, with PTSD patients, as well as to guide the conversation aiming to elicit enough information to make an assessment of their condition, in a manner similar to a self assessment test. Our system is able to adapt to each individual patient and can operate in two modes: one that stores information about previous sessions with a patient to provide a sense of trust and relationship; and one that does not store information to preserve anonymity.
