Abstract

Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a new, comprehensive model of health care that provides guidance for other human services as well. The concept of EBP is subject to considerable misinterpretations, as those invested in the status quo attempt to distort this new and growing movement into existing practices. By drawing on the original source handbook, Evidence–Based Medicine: Howto Practice and Teach EBM, this article describes what EBP really is, what its major steps are, and what its implications are for the delivery of brief treatments and crisis interventions.
