Researcher Allegiance and Meta-analysis: The Case of Cognitive Therapy for Depression.
Gaffan, E. A.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v63 n6 p966-80 Dec 1995
Reexamines the studies of K. S. Dobson regarding metaanalysis of cognitive-behavioral therapy for depression using the Beck Depression Inventory as an outcome measure. Confirms Dobson's conclusions but shows that about half the difference between CT and other treatments was predictable from researcher allegiance. Comparable analysis of a later set of studies shows no such effect. Discusses this phenomenon. (KW)
