There is no one way to recover. There are many different approaches to counseling and therapy.
Evidence-based practice in psychology (EBPP) is the integration of the best available research with clinical expertise in the context of patient characteristics, culture, and preferences.” (APA, 2005)
When considering evidence-based practices it is also important to consider that the research supporting the theory does not have biases. That the theory shows data that supports successful use for the age, group, culture, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status and education level of the person you are treating. Counseling is a patient center approach, and patient preferences are to be the deciding factor in any approach used.
One theory may not work for everyone and sometimes a combination of theories can prove beneficial.
Each counselor, each patient, each diagnosis is unique. With experience, treatment, and time the patient's needs and diagnosis may change. Please remember to use assessments and EBPP NOT as a blanket diagnosis tools and practices, but to monitor improvements in patients symptoms.
Before considering any one theory please consider reading the following articles, on the importance of making Evidence Based Practice in Psychology(EBPP) into a Tripartite Model.
