However, such a design means that adequate measures of success, more sensitive than a rating scale, would have to be devised since the scores subjected to the analysis of variance would be 'improvement' scores on a number of criterion measures. In addition this solution needs, in toto, a number of adequately matched patients of each nosological category for each therapist in the study. The practical problems of this theoretically elegant solution are therefore considerable. Consideration of outcome or criterion scores alone without control of these factors is clearly inadequate, however. On account of these problems of sampling and measurement another approach has been adopted - examination of the therapeutic process itself.
