DefinitionA fanciful term for the 1975 assertion by LB Luborsky et. al. in the Archives of General Psychiatry that all mental health therapies are equally effective or ineffective.
The name refers to the Dodo in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, who tells the racers, “Everyone has won, and all have prizes!”. Per Luborsky, talk therapies are either equally good or bad.
