Dobson, Keith S.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v57 n3 p414-19 Jun 1989
A meta-analysis of 28 studies was conducted to review the effectiveness of Beck's cognitive therapy for depression, and to compare cognitive therapy with other modes of therapy. Results documented a greater degree of change for cognitive therapy compared with a waiting list or no-treatment control, pharmacotherapy, behavior therapy, and other psychotherapies. Implications are discussed. (TE)
