Treatment publishes scientific and clinical research on the outcome
of psychological and pharmacological therapies for mental, emotional
and behaviorial dysfunctions.

Co-edited by Martin Seligman, PhD and Donald F. Klein, MD, Treatment
publishes articles using a range of methods, including:

Clinical trials run among competing credible treatments with emphasis
on randomization, independent assessment, follow-up and adequate
controls

Comparison of new intervention with traditional treatment

Sequential studies exploring multiple treatments

Outcome studies with credible placebo controls

Long-term follow-up studies examining recurrence and relapse

Prevention studies

Process analysis tracking mediators and modulators
of outcomes

Public investment studies yielding cost-benefit analyses
of interventions

Effectiveness and efficacy studies emphasizing
utility in clinical field circumstances

Case series documenting repeatable and range of outcomes

Case histories reporting new interventions

Methodological studies for obtaining valid outcome inferences.

Articles will be rapidly reviewed and upon acceptance immediately
disseminated electronically. Peer reviewer comments will be published
along with each original article. Treatment will also foster
discussion through non-peer-reviewed email lists and author-reader
chat lines. All members of both APAs will receive Treatment free as a
benefit of membership; therefore, accepted articles will be
guaranteed rapid access to a large readership of mental health
researchers and clinicians.
