It is remarkable that so many important issues in psychotherapy research are touched on and, in some cases, more thoroughly explored in D. Westen and K. Morrison's (2001) meta-analysis and its discussion. Although no previously unanswered questions are resolved on the basis of their findings, original approaches to familiar questions are attempted and intriguing data are presented. Westen and Morrison's capacity to "think outside the box" while they seek to answer very familiar questions is most impressive. In the final analysis, the most significant outcome of Westen and Morrison's laudable effort can be that it might lead other psychotherapy researchers to do important things differently in the future.
