  • Evidence-Based Interventions

    What is Evidence-Based Intervention?

    Evidence-based intervention is a treatment based on research and scientific studies that have been shown to be effective for the specific difficulty that you are seeking help for.   This means you may receive a different type of treatment depending on your specific issue so that therapy for trauma, anxiety, or depression may be treated with a different approach.  Evidenced-based interventions are time-limited and require daily practice assignments with a high level of commitment which makes them more effective than traditional talk therapy.

    Evidenced-based interventions offered:

    • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
    • Cognitive Processing Therapy
    • Exposure with Response Prevention
    • Interoceptive Exposure Therapy
    • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (individual only)
    • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
    • Parent Child Interaction Therapy

    Evidenced-based interventions are time-limited and require more commitment and active engagement than traditional talk therapy.  For example, Cognitive Processing is typically 12 weeks while Dialectical Behavior Therapy can take 4 – 6 months.  Brief Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can last as little as 6 weeks.  Good candidates for evidence-based therapy are clients who are highly motivated to make significant changes in thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and are willing to practice new skills outside of therapy.
