Do we connect or understand each other in face-to-face conversations? UfaceME™ is a dynamic relational learning tool that effects positive behavioral change and improves relationships in any setting: from workplace training and management relations, to social services, to therapeutic and family relations settings.
The UfaceME Method uses patented video technology to capture a face-to-face conversation, then discover and measure individual viewpoints and perceptions.
Original research by UfaceME and the University of Minnesota is published.
The Dove Press – Advances in Medical Education and Practice Journal published an original research paper on May 19, 2019 that demonstrates the effectiveness of the UfaceME process in training medical students to take effective and comfortable sexual histories with patients. The study was led by Dr. Michael Ross, Program of Human Sexuality, University of Minnesota Medical School.
The first trial included 14 students in a focus group, followed by sessions experienced by 175 students, whose overwhelmingly positive response supported the qualitative data. Further sessions are planned. Dr. Ross was awarded the 2019 U. of M. Medical School’s Year 1-2 Excellence in Innovation Award based on this work.
The paper is titled “A new computer application for teaching sexual history taking to medical students: innovation and evaluation in the UfaceME program.” Here’s a link to the full text of the published research paper.

The simple-to use technology allows you and another person to:
Relate to one another.
Record your conversation.
Respond to statements that help you identify your feelings at regular intervals throughout the entire conversation.
Review your responses to discover significant moments in your conversation. These are crystallizing moments. As issues are identified and viewpoints validated, mutual and self-understanding happen.
A personal action plan with tangible goals may begin after completion of the first session.
The flexible and user-friendly design makes the UfaceME system a powerful tool for relationship empowerment wherever people work, play, and live.
