In the introduction the question is answered, why the meta-analysis of Klaus Grawe, Ruth Donati und Friederike Bernauer should be taken seriously by psychoanalysts. Above all is a problem, that implicit in this meta-analytical evaluation there are methods and criterions of the empirical behavioristic psychotherapy research, which favour automatically the behavioral therapy. The abuse of empirical research to denigrate psychoanalytic training and training institutes is criticized. Reflection on adequate assumptions for a psychoanalytical psychotherapy research is pleaded for and some requirements are mentioned. In view of the mentioned deficiencies the claim of Grawe et al. to deduce important conclusions on their meta-analysis, must be evaluated as false.
