Thanks for drawing our attention to the common thread in the latest issue of Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology. If there are methodological problems with the literature, such as low statistical power and inattention towards assessment of the quality of homework compliance, what can be concluded about the role of homework in everyday practice of cognitive therapy?

Also, is there any data on how cognitive therapists actually use homework in practice?
