Evidence-Based Practice in Psychology – What it is & How to do it – 6CE Credit
The workshop provides an overview and practical application of the concept of evidence-based practice (EBP). Three major aspects of EBP will be emphasized: (1) empirically supported treatments (e.g., manualized and principle based protocols), (2) evidence-based psychotherapy relationships and responsiveness, and (3) routine outcome/progress monitoring. Clinical application of each aspect of EBP will be illustrated via case examples, role play, and demonstration. There will be opportunities for discussion of challenges and means of incorporating evidence-based principles into your practice.
Licensed mental health professionals and trainees currently providing psychotherapy/psychological treatment to adult clients.
