In the words of Stuart Ablon and Jones (1998): “the cognitive–behavioral therapists applied a good deal in the way of cognitive– behavioral techniques, but did not foster a psychodynamic process. The cognitive–behavioral treatments appeared to follow the cognitive–behavioral model closely. The psychodynamic treatments that were studied clearly included a more diverse set of interventions” (p. 80). Expertise might account for the fact that senior psychotherapists produced more combined inferences, which, by relating diﬀerent topics to each other, attempted to explain, relate, and integrate more aspects of the patient’s problem into more elaborated clinical inferences.
