Just the opposite; the familiar null findings central to the ‘nothing works’ claim suggested only that members of the ‘no treatment’ control groups tended to reform themselves at the same rate as members of the treatment groups. As Hans Toch (1997: 97) states, the ‘most salient finding in therapeutic research is that the control group members tend to improve too’. The problem, Toch (2002) more recently joked, was never so much that ‘nothing works,’ but that almost ‘everything works’.
