Looking Weakly in All the Wrong Places? Comment on Shapiro et al. (1994).
Norcross, John C.; Rossi, Joseph S.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v62 n3 p535-38 Jun 1994
Commends Shapiro et al.'s (this issue) article comparing psychodynamic-interpersonal therapy with cognitive-behavioral therapy in treating depression. Questions uncritical support of equivalent outcomes conclusion and implicit rejection of differential efficacy among psychotherapies as function of patient variables. Contends that Shapiro et al. overestimated statistical power of analyses to detect genuine interactions and selected variables not relevant to treatment. (Author/NB)
