Abstract

In a recently published article,Kessel and Streim (1976) attempted to evaluate the quality of therapy outcome related to Rational-Emotive Psychotherapy (RET) research and its relevance to the practice of RET. The current authors find Kessel's and Streim's review lacking on two major issues: the adequacy of their review of the appropriate literature and their critique of the application of experimental methods to questions concerning psychotherapy outcome. In the present paper a more current and representative sample of RET-relevant outcome research is reviewed and experimental study of psychotherapy is discussed.
