We developed a prototype of a visualization tool called LinkVis. It is a tool for visualizing complex psychotherapeutic actions, their effects and the states of the patients. The combination of different views enables the user to get new insights. Focusing on exploration tasks by the user we enhanced this tool by the Hyperbolic Hypotheses Tree. This feature supports the user in defining goals and getting an overview in order to overcome the gap between highly abstracted information about the states of patients on the one hand and interpretation of details of graphical representations on the other hand.
