Engaging in evidence-based practice means that you approach your work with a scholar-practitioner mindset. This approach includes seeking to find evidence in the literature or field for treatments and keeping up with the profession in general, understanding and being aware of new information that is emerging, and understanding trends in the field. Evidence-based practice is more of a mindset or general approach to your work, whereas the term empirically supported treatments refers to specific treatment interventions.
