Few topics in mental health are as important and controversial as evidence-based practices. Unfortunately, this multifacted topic has been reduced to simplistic and polarized arguments. This book, designed for mental health practitioners, trainers, and graduate students, addresses nine fundamental questions in the ongoing debate. Each chapter centers on one particular question, provides focused position papers on that question, and concludes with a dialogue among the contributors. This book helps readers understand the central issues in this fiercely contested subject, provides a balance of views, and purges needless confusion and antagonism. In doing so, it underscores both the robust commonalities and the remaining contentions regarding evidence-based practices in mental health.
