|Title:||The efficacy of problem solving therapy in reducing mental and physical health problems: A meta-analysis||Contributor(s):||Malouff, John Michael (author); Thorsteinsson, Einar Baldvin (author) ; Schutte, Nicola (author)||Publication Date:||2007||DOI:||10.1016/j.cpr.2005.12.005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3331||Abstract:||This paper describes a meta-analysis of 31 studies that examined the efficacy of problem solving therapy (PST). The meta-analysis, encompassing 2895 participants, showed that PST is significantly more effective than no treatment (d = 1.37), treatment as usual (d = 0.54), and attention placebo (d = 0.54), but not significantly more effective than other bona fide treatments offered as part of a study (d = 0.22). Significant moderators included whether the PST included problem-orientation training, whether homework was assigned, and whether a developer of PST helped conduct the study.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Clinical Psychology Review, 27(1), p. 46-57||Publisher:||Elsevier||Place of Publication:||London, UK||ISSN:||0272-7358||Field of Research (FOR):||170106 Health, Clinical and Counselling Psychology||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||920410 Mental Health||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 293
