Abstract

Criticizes C. Martindale's (see record 1979-25041-001) assertions for failure to recognize the lack of uniformity in domains and classes of variables involved in psychotherapy research, and the need to fit design and analyses to the data obtained and the questions asked. Fallacies regarding absolute or invariant use of statistical models and techniques are discussed. (9 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
