Interesting Psychotherapy Blog

I recently stumbled upon a blog called Psychotherapy Brown Bag, Discussing the Science of Clinical Psychology. This isn’t a site about only autism, but about an array of mental disorder diagnoses, and many different psychotherapeutic treatments. It’s a useful site for those looking for in- depth and detailed science, because the information is presented in a straightforward, easy to read manner, and the facts are referenced. Some more technical terms and ideas, such as “meta-analysis” are discussed at length. But most important for non-professionals looking to understand the science of mental health treatment, it’s a very good example of a well written scientific site, with authors clearly identified, facts clearly referenced and a general lack of hype and hyperbole. Check it out and see if it's worth adding to your regular reading.
