Treatment Decisions of Mental Health Profesionals

leave a comment »

I am very happy to have found some fellow researchers that have agreed to write one or more guestposts in the Behavioural Science Blog. For a start I (Martin Metzmacher) have invited a collegue of mine, Christina Sommerdyk, to tell something about biases in clinical decision making, especially what role causal interpretation of a disorder plays in treatment decision. Just today I have read the first draft, which already looked pretty promising. Check back next week to find information about why treatment decisions of mental health profesionals are often deeply biased.
