The Proper Focus of Evidence-Based Practice
What is the proper focus of evidence-based practice? Is it the treatment method, the psychotherapy relationship, the client as self-active healer, or principles based on the preponderance of evidence from the process-outcome research? In this program, five preeminent psychotherapy researchers advocate for these positions. A discussion by an expert in the area of psychotherapy integration emphasizes the need for methodological pluralism in understanding these different perspectives and a realistic stance when thinking about theory in the light of third-party reimbursement. This symposium was organized by the Division of Psychotherapy for the 2005 annual convention of the American Psychological Association in Washington D.C. It is based on the 2006 book Evidence-based practices in mental health: Debate and dialogue on the fundamental questions edited by John C. Norcross, Larry E. Beutler, and APA past-president Ron F. Levant and published by the American Psychological Association.
