Abstract: The goal of evidence-based practice in psychology (EBPP) is to improve public health through the application of research-supported assessment, case formulation, therapeutic relationship, and treatment approaches. Although EBPP is defined broadly, many efforts to improve practice have focused on treatment, with less attention paid to other aspects of practice. In this chapter, it is argued that significant work is needed to encourage the dissemination of information about evidence-based assessment (EBA) and its implementation in routine clinical practice. The chapter discusses how EBA differs from usual clinical assessment practices and describes efforts to increase the use of EBA. Finally, the chapter presents suggestions for steps that must be taken to advance the use of EBA in clinical settings.
