Industry-associated financial conflict of interest (COI) has been documented to distort the outcomes and interpretations of trials,1 meta-analyses,2 and guidelines3 of medical treatments. As a result, COI disclosures are now often required from authors whose work is published in biomedical journals. Enforcement of disclosure policies is still suboptimal in medical journals, but there has been improvement over time4 and some consensus on which COIs are worth disclosing. However, the discussion of financial COI associated with psychosocial interventions has remained underdeveloped.
