Abstract

A computerized search of published abstracts in PsychInfo was conducted to obtain the frequency of annual citations since 1984 for six forms of psychotherapy. Cognitive-Behavioral therapies showed the most rapid increase over the past 16 years. Family therapies, in contrast, showed a significant decline in the number of abstract citations since 1990. At present, brief, empirically tested treatments appear to be generating the greatest discussion in the academic and scientific literature.
