Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is often considered the most effective form of psychotherapy, i.e., the gold standard. It is argued, however, that there is no evidence for the superiority of CBT compared to other approaches. The following aspects, among others, are reviewed: quality of studies, publication bias, type of control groups, actual rates of improvement in various disorders, lack of improvement of the effect sizes of CBT in the last 40 years, lack of corroboration of central mechanisms of change of CBT, the often uncontrolled researcher allegiance, and comparative efficacy of CBT.
Keywords: Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT); Psychotherapy research; Psychotherapy outcome; Comparison among psychotherapies; Gold standard
