Need more help deciding?

What is Evidence-Based Therapy?

Evidence-based therapy (EBT), is any therapy based on psychological approaches and techniques that are based on scientific evidence. Evidence-Based Therapy is considered “Best Practice” and is the preferred approach for psychological symptom treatment by many in the field.

Evidence-Based Therapy takes into consideration a client’s preferences, actions, clinical state, and circumstances. It can be summed up by saying that evidence-based therapy refers to psychotherapy practices which have been proven effective rather than those purely based in theory.

When it comes to any sort of mental health or physical health treatment plan, it is crucial for the techniques used to not only be evidence-based, but to be continually evaluated and re-evaluated for efficacy. The evidence-based therapy movement is one that centers the patient’s needs. Further, research indicates that for a therapist to be effective in the use of Evidence-Based Therapy as an approach, the therapist should be (a) well trained (b) caring and empathetic, and (c) rely on scientific evidence to guide their therapy/treatment plans. Our counselors at Thriveworks Blacksburg meet all of these qualifications and more.

Is Evidence-Based Therapy Appropriate for Everyone, then?

It is important to understand that not all mental health treatments are equally effective for every individual client, and you should keep this in mind when searching for a therapist. In other words, some therapies may work better for some mental health issues than others; some therapies work better for some individuals than others. If you have a trusting and comfortable relationship with your therapist, you can be assured that he/she is using the approach and treatment plan that he/she deems best for you and your specific situation. You can trust the clinicians at Thriveworks Blacksburg to work with you towards healing and wellness in the way they feel will best help you reach those goals!

So nice, reassuring, helpful for what I needed. Explained everything very well. I feel I don’t have a bunch of questions I should have asked.
