Descriptive Experience Sampling Interactive Multimedia Training Tool By Arva Bensaheb Dr. Russell T. Hurlburt, Examination Committee Chair Professor of Psychology University of Nevada Las Vegas The present study developed a multimedia training tool to teach skills necessary to recognize two phenomena identified by the Descriptive Experience Sampling method: sensory awareness and unsymbolized thinking. The training tool was developed by subjecting successive versions to critical feedback provided by focus groups. Then training provided by this new training tool was compared with the training provided by extant literary materials on the two phenomena. Results suggest that the training tool was more effective in teaching the student to recognize sensory awareness and unsymbolized thinking than were essay-based training materials. The multimedia training tool methodology offers a promising, portable method of training that could further our understanding and skill of recognizing inner experience phenomenon identified by DES.
