  1. Treatment outcome either for selected clinical issues (e.g., depression) or cost-effectiveness,
  2. Studies that examine specific process-outcome relationships (such as the association between interpretative work and outcome),
  3. Specific group formats and approaches (such as psychoeducational groups for stress management),
  4. Focus on individual differences that impact group treatment (such as race/class/gender or member attachment), or
  5. Comparisons of group therapy to other forms of treatment.
