Behavior Therapy and Tricyclic Medication in the Treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: A Quantitative Review.
Christensen, Helen; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n5 p701-11 Oct 1987
Used a meta-analysis to integrate the research literature on the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Antidepressants, such as clomipramine, and behavior therapy have produced appreciable changes in obsessive-compulsive and depressive symptoms. The effects of tricyclic medication and exposure therapies have not differed significantly, but both proved superior to nonspecific treatment programs. (Author/KS)
