Bell Curve

The so called "bell curve" refers to the phenomena that most human traits tend to fall in distribution that resembles the shape of a bell. This is also true to for most measure of performance, including estimates of clinician "effectiveness". The bell curve distribution of clinician effectiveness is not limited to psychotherapy, but also appears in other areas of medicine.

For a fascinating and provocative discussion of of the bell curve in outcomes for the treatment of cystic fibrosis, see: The Bell Curve; New Yorker Magazine, December, 2004
