Author information

  • 1Brookside Hospital, Nashua, NH 03063.


Reports on individual nonbehavioral child and adolescent psychotherapy since 1963 are reviewed. Inclusion criteria required some minimal contrasting group. Forty-three studies were assessed for basic methodological adequacy and main findings. The authors conclude that summary impressions from this body of literature cannot be made due to the magnitude of the flaws in basic psychotherapy research methodology. Suggestions are made regarding the future of child and adolescent psychotherapy research.
