I would like to add that a great deal of efficacy and effectivity studies of psychotherapy center on CBT because that approach lends itself to a more controlled study than psychodynamic therapies do. That, IMO, is why CBT is leading the way in the research. It's simply easier to study, because the interventions are more concrete and more easily standardized. I believe the body of literature is skewed towards CBT for this reason. Psychodynamic therapy is so individually-based and so dependent on the therapeutic alliance, that it is hard to control and still provide ethical treatment within a research frame. Process studies of psychodynamic therapy, however, are identifying key and effective process elements which are proving to be robust.
