Effective Treatments and Evidence Based Practice

Over the last decade there has been something of a revolution in the development of research evidence about effective and efficient treatments in the field of psychotherapy and psychological therapies. This development in research evidence has seen a significant movement and progress towards better organised and more effective services.

Developing More Effective Treatments

At Cathexis Psychotherapy we benefit from this developing knowledge in a number of ways:

In the application of research in evidence based treatments.


In the evolution of practice based evidence towards more effective therapies, through the routine use of clinical outcome measures.

Setting Standards for Effective Treatments

As a result there are now improving standards of practice for safe and effective treatment. More information on effective treatments and evidence based practice is available from professional bodies such as the Psychotherapy Foundation.
