What is Evidence-Based Practice?

Evidence-based practice (EBP) has shaped the face of psychological practice over the past 20 years by integrating three basic principles: (1) the best available research evidence bearing on whether and why a treatment works, (2) clinical expertise (clinical judgment and experience) to identify each client's unique presentation, their individual risks and benefits of potential interventions, and (3) client preferences and values. This has been a game-changer for mental health practitioners trained in EBP as they can draw on the scientific knowledge base as well as their own clinical wisdom to formulate a treatment approach that aligns with each client's unique values, goals, and personality.
