Our work is informed by using an Evidenced Based Practice in Psychology (EBPP) model within a systemic and cultural framework.
- APA (2005) defines EBPP as the “integration of the best available research with clinical expertise in the context of patient characteristics, culture, and preferences.”
We expand this definition to encompass the intersection of broader societal and cultural framework with the best available research combined with consultant expertise in the context of systemic characteristics. Our work takes into account that the best available research is often conducted within a western perspective and may not inform the needs of other cultural systems.
Using the expertise of our multicultural orientated consultants our goal is to accommodate best available research overlaid with the unique characteristics of the systems in which we will collaborate.
