What is Evidence-Based Treatment?

Many treatments are available for child and adolescent mental health symptoms.  Some are backed by science (i.e., “evidence-based treatments”), and some are not.  This site was developed to educate the public and professionals about mental health treatments that have the strongest scientific support, and are most likely to work.  This site is offered as a completely free service.

The site was developed by the Association of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies and the Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, a division of the American Psychological Association. The site is maintained regularly to ensure that information reflects the current scientific literature. All psychological treatments are considered for inclusion on this website, and anyone may offer input on the information listed. To learn more about how to request a change to this site, click here.
