Evidence Based Psychotherapy (EBP): the Queen is "dead" and "long live" the new Queen?
By Prof Oei Tian Po
Director of the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Unit of Toowong Private Hospital in Queensland, Emeritus Professor of University of Queensland, and Visiting Professor, James Cook University Singapore.
It is clear that EBP, in particular CBT has produced many benefits that are well known and accepted. However, the "Dark side" and the negative consequences of EBP are seldom discussed openly. This lecture will present a brief history of EBP and the benefits. It will also examine the dark side and the many unintended negative consequences of EBP.
It will show that the negative consequences outweigh the benefits and will argue that the old model of EBP is not useful in the current climate and will present a new model of EBP - it is hope that the new model of EBP will have a long life.
Prof Oei Tian Po is a Fellow of the Australia Psychological Society, and the Director of the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Unit of Toowong Private Hospital in Queensland. He is now an Emeritus Professor of University of Queensland and also part time visiting Professor at James Cook University in Singapore, Beijing Normal, and Nanjing Universities in PR China.
