When Evidence-Based Treatments Don’t Work with Dr. Susan Litton – Episode 67

In celebration of our first birthday, we’re releasing the second of two new episodes this week. This episode is part of our Clinicians’ Series, where we take a deeper dive into therapeutic processes. Dr. Susan Litton, CEO of PsyBooks and Clinical Psychologist, returns in a discussion with Dr. Graham Taylor about the limits of evidence-based practices and the art that goes into combining the diverse forms of psychotherapies. Evidence-based approaches run the risk of not attending to patient’s ability to being the agents of their change and becoming their own self-healers. In this discussion, we ask clinicians to trust they have enough information and understanding of your client, and to have done their own inner-work to select the approach for the presenting problems and not get stuck within the proverbial evidence-based box.
