Focusing on psychotherapy research, illustrates methods for studying mediator and moderator variables in meta-analysis, discusses their advantages and disadvantages, and shows how inclusion of these variables can change interpretation of meta-analytic results. Notes that therapeutic orientation may make significant difference to outcome but only by virtue of its moderating and mediating effects. (Author/NB)
