Principles of Empirically Supported Interventions in Counseling Psychology
Wampold, Bruce E.; Lichtenberg, James W.; Waehler, Charles A.
Counseling Psychologist, v30 n2 p197-217 2002
The authors present background on the development of principles for the identification of empirically supported interventions in counseling psychology by the American Psychological Association's Division 17 and include an overview of guiding considerations around which these principles were developed. As a context for these principles, the authors present a brief history of the social-economic-professional context within which the sometimes contentious movement toward the recognition of empirically supported treatments has developed within professional psychology. Seven principles for the consideration of the empirical support of counseling psychology interventions are presented along with discussion of the rationale behind each principle.
