    Another good blog by James Coyne:

    "This post serves as a supplement to one in PLOS Mind the Brain, Salvaging Psychotherapy Research: a Manifesto. The Mind the Brain post declares


    We need to shift the culture of doing and reporting psychotherapy research. We need to shift from praising exaggerated claims about treatment and faux evidence generated to promote opportunities for therapists and their professional organizations. Instead, it is much more praiseworthy to provide robust, sustainable, even if more modest claims and to call out hype and hokum in ways that preserve the credibility of psychotherapy.

    The current post provides documentation in the form of citations and further links for the points made there concerning the need to reform the psychotherapy research literature."

    Yes, very much my sentiments. Things can be fixed, but don't fix themselves.
