Abstract

Is the introduction of evidence-based psychotherapy into mainstream child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) a breakthrough for a scientific approach to child mental health? Or are we still in the dark ages despite our best efforts to link evidence with practice (EBP)? Marchette and Weisz (2017) review three treatment strategies that have the potential to establish a pattern of clinical practice that would allow the discoveries of a rigorous developmental science to inform the average practitioner’s work with their routine caseloads. Their review suggests that this can be achieved in a manner that does justice to the concerns of children, young people and their families, at the same time as enabling us to claim that our clinical work is genuinely informed by our scientific understanding of mental disorder and its treatment.
