Omschrijving Evidence-based interventions play a crucial role in the entire health care sector. First, we consider what evidence-based means and outline the origins and development of the importance of empirically supported treatment by means of literature. Then, the role of research on therapy effect will be dealt with, as well as the treatment protocols developed and used in effectiveness research. What kind of research is necessary and desirable to reach evidence-based interventions will be illustrated by means of examples. In addition, the development of multidisciplinary guidelines will be explained and discussed. The concepts dealt with will be illustrated by means of concrete examples of treatments, including treatment of anxiety disorders, depressions, and somatoform disorders in both adults and youth. Specific topics will be addressed in interaction with researchers that are experts in the field of evidence-based interventions.
