Training in Evidence-Based Psychological Practice at the Master's Level
Although a wealth of evidence supports the use of evidence-based psychological practice (EBPP) for clients with diverse difficulties, from anxiety and depression to behavioral problems, the majority of training in EBPP takes place at the doctoral and postdoctoral level. This is problematic given that there are many more master's level mental health professionals than doctoral ones, especially in rural and low-income areas. This article outlines a model for a 60-hour training program that focuses on preparing master's students to become competent in the practice of EBPP in a relatively short period of time, while at the same time meeting requirements for licensure in most states. Course sequence, course content, clinical experience, and supervision issues are all addressed, as are challenges to implementation of the model.
