CBT is not really 'talk' therapy

That's another good article about the Toronto study. (Thanks, jr.) The HealthDay editor is a little misleading, though, in calling CBT "talk" therapy. CBT is usually distinguished from the various dyad-based, catharsis-oriented, free-asociating, psychodynamic, "depth" psychotherapies -- which really do emphasize *talk*. CBT teaches step-by-step techniques, assigns homework exercises and doesn't linger on talking.
