Dr Beth Fordham, Senior Psychology Research Fellow leading the project, said "We would like to hear what people think about the project aims, methods and the most useful method of synthesising the vast CBT effectiveness data for use in clinical and research usage."

The aim of the CBT-O project is to map and synthesise all systematic reviews of RCTs examining the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioural therapy. Read more about the project.
