Invece di preoccuparsi giustamente di esaminare le evidenze dell’efficacia di vari approcci terapeutici e gli assunti che li sorreggono, il movimento dei "trattamenti supportati empiricamente" (empirically supported treatments [EST]) è caratterizzato più da ideologia e da assunti non veri che da buona scienza. Questo articolo esamina in dettaglio i limiti scientifici e logici del movimento degli "EST" e tenta di collocare la ricerca empirica in psicoterapia su basi più solide.)" />

There has been much confusion in the literature of psychotherapy research on the difference between the broad concept of evidence-based practice and the narrower set of criteria that have been employed in designating certain treatments as "empirically validated" or "empirically supported". In contrast to the appropriate concern with examining the evidence for the efficacy of various psychotherapies and for the theoretical assumptions that underlie them, the "empirically supported treatments" (EST) movement has been characterized more by ideology and faulty assumptions than by good science. This paper examines in detail the scientific and logical limitations of the "EST" movement and aims to place the empirical investigation of theory and practice in psychotherapy on a sounder basis.
