[Correspondence] Science is what we need in the treatment of anxiety disorders

It is very surprising that Michelle Craske and Murray Stein (May 13, p 1883)1 assert that “Given the paucity and quality of studies of PDT [psychodynamic therapy] for anxiety disorders compared with CBT [cognitive behavioural therapy], the weight of the evidence enables us to confidently recommend only CBT at this time for the treatment of anxiety disorders.” In their response, Craske and Stein did not provide any evidence for either the poor or poorer quality of studies of PDT for anxiety, or for superiority of CBT.
