Toward the incorporation of costs, cost-effectiveness analysis, and cost-benefit analysis into clinical research : New methods in mental health research.
Most research in clinical psychology and related disciplines does not measure, report, or analyze costs, cost-effectiveness, or cost-benefit analysis.
Reasons for this are discussed.
It may be thought, for example, that costs are trivial to measure.
Data are represented to show that the values of resources consumed in treatment (costs) actually can be quite complex to assess accurately and completely.
Research findings are assembled to show that costs, as experienced by clients, may be beneficial to assess in that they can be significantly related to the outcomes of treatment.
