A-B therapist variable: Reply to Betz’s and Whitehorn’s commentaries

Charles L. Bowden, Jean Endicott, Robert L. Spitzer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Although Dr. Betz is correct that an independent sample of patients was studied (1956, 1957), that study has no direct bearing on our inquiry, as its intent was to corroborate the descriptive differences in therapist style. As we reported, except for the one study using statistical procedures of questionable validity, there was no independent study of the A-B scale findings.
