To the Editor: Janis L. Cutler, M.D., et al. (1) presented an excellent clinical case conference comparing approaches to the treatment of an individual using three different types of psychotherapy (cognitive behavior therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, and psychodynamic therapy). Dr. Cutler commented that cognitive behavior therapy and interpersonal psychotherapists "do not believe it necessary to explore or interpret transference" (p. 1572). We would disagree with this statement with regard to cognitive behavior therapy. As cognitive behavior therapy supervisors training psychiatry residents, we often find that supervisees and psychodynamic therapy supervisors have the perception that transference is not examined in cognitive behavior therapy. In our opinion, this is one of the major misconceptions of cognitive behavior therapy that has been identified by various experts (2–5).
