1. A researcher is interested in comparing the effectiveness of three different kinds of therapy for anger problems. Eight participants are randomly assigned to three treatment conditions: Cognitive Therapy (CT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Interpersonal Therapy (IT). All participants complete the weekly treatment for 8 weeks. Participants take an anger test before and after the 8-week treatments. Each participantââ?¬â?¢s difference score (= anger score after the treatment minus (ââ?¬") anger score before the treatment) is shown in the following table. The three therapists in this experiment have equal educational levels and clinical experiences. CT CBT IT
