Abstract

This brief report provides a concise overview of decades of research into what really makes a difference in treatment outcomes for the most common psychiatrics disorders. The evidence points to the conclusion that the relationship with the clinician accounts for much more of the variance in treatment outcomes than the treatment methods themselves. The discussion of research and statistical methodology are relevant to investigations of treatments for speech and language disorders.
