Discussion: Evidence-Based and Non-Evidence-Based Programs
The efficacy of evidence-based programs is supported by rigorous scientific studies. The term evidence based is synonymous with other terms, including science based and empirically based. They refer to measuring the effectiveness of programs through objective, controlled scientific studies.
Helping professionals should be prepared to use evidence-based approaches, know how they differ from non-evidence-based approaches, and recognize how their use influences treatment practices.
