What is Evidence-Based Therapy

Evidence-Based Therapy (EBT), more broadly referred to as evidence-based practice (EBP), is any therapy that has shown to be effective in peer-reviewed scientific experiments. According to the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies, evidence-based practice is characterized by an:

“[a]dherence to psychological approaches and techniques that are based on scientific evidence”.

The American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association both consider EBT/EBP to be:

“‘best practice’ and one of the ‘preferred’ approaches for the treatment of psychological symptoms”.

In relevant literature, evidence-based medicine has also been defined as the:

“conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients”

(Sackett et al., 1996).
