The same or not?

Evaluation and Critical Evaluation. Do these mean the same thing or not? I ask, well I shouldn't, I bloody know they mean different things except that my very nice tutor has specified they more or less mean the same thing.

So currently I use: Zotero for managing my reference as this firefox tool basically sucks the reference from the web-page and archive it including a snapshot of the page and PDF, if I so wish. It allows me to add notes...

But where is the evidence that 3rd wave therapies will work? I mean coming from an empirical view, CBT is pretty well established with RCT.

Basically for my 3rd year project I'm investigating "Childhood victimization as a predictor of muscle dysmorphia in adult males" and I'm having a lot ...
