The aim of the study was to find out the assessment categories and the statistical approaches that would best indicate the efficacy of psychotherapy. The assessment categories considered were psychophysio-Iogical and psychometric measures and the statistical approaches were intertreatment conditions comparison and inter-group change-score comparison. The results were discussed in terms of the differences in the subjects' physical and experiential manifestation of psychological distress and in the light of the law of initial values.
