Update on CBT-vs-Medication

Update a recent post: Should “we” prefer more expensive medications?

Today I ran across this paper, which assessed what happens if you ask people if they prefer CBT (talk therapy) or medication. The number of patients is too small for any strong conclusions, but it seems that getting the treatment of your choice has some beneficial effects, particularly for talk therapy (it has no statistically significant impact on the case on medication, but, again, the number of patients is very small).
