Abstract

We argue that the evidence-based practice (EBP) model represents an evolution in integrating science and practice and synchronizes well with broader trends in health care. Because the curriculum for EBP training involves explicit emphasis on the best empirical evidence within Clinical Psychology, it can be utilized by all programs, irrespective of theoretical orientation or training mission. We articulate four principles that speak to core training and foundational clinical supervision, to guide training using an EBP model. These principles can be integrated within the larger rubric of a program and can encourage more consistent curricular reliance on EBP. This approach to doctoral training could lead to greater consistency across training programs and bring science and practice closer together within Clinical Psychology.
