Ethical Considerations for Cognitive-Behavioral Therapists in Psychotherapy Research Trials
Haman, Kirsten L.; Hollon, Steven D.
Cognitive and Behavioral Practice, v16 n2 p153-163 May 2009
Psychotherapy research studies, which balance the pursuit of knowledge with the provision of treatment, can place unique demands on clinicians, patients, and research staff. However, the literature on ethical considerations in psychotherapy trials is minimal. The current paper depicts CBT community standards of practice in the context of two NIMH-funded treatment trials of major depression, both involving CBT and medication. We describe issues that arose; discuss the ethical considerations involved; and describe our course of action, along with our rationale. (Contains 1 table.)
