Summary

Evidence-Based Practice in Psychology and Mental Health

  • Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) aims to improve the quality, effectiveness, and appropriateness of clinical practice, reduce variations in practice patterns, substantiate care, and involve clients in decision making.
  • EBP relies on critical thinking skills, evidence evaluation, awareness of bias, ethical practice, and clinical reasoning.
  • Eminence-based practice refers to professionals relying on outdated knowledge and habits, potentially compromising the quality of care.
  • Some health-related fields still rely on experience and seniority, which may lead to mistakes and lack of accountability.
  • Pseudoscientific practices like physiognomy and phrenology from the 1800s are making a modern "comeback" despite lacking evidence.
  • The self-help industry, worth $80 billion annually, often lacks evidence to support its interventions.
  • DiveThru, a mental health app, offers self-directed exercises but lacks meaningful interaction, potentially undermining its effectiveness.
  • Social media can perpetuate misinformation and oversimplify complex health and wellness issues, leading to self-diagnosis and self-treatment.
  • Fasting may have temporary mood benefits but can lead to harmful mental health outcomes and disordered eating attitudes and behaviors.
  • Ionic foot spas claiming to release toxins lack scientific evidence and may cause chemical imbalances in the mind and body.
  • Therapists must demonstrate accountability, advocacy, altruism, and continuous learning to practice evidence-based psychology and mental health care.
  • It is important to seek reliable sources and avoid misinformation to effectively support clients and the public in mental health and wellness.
