The past two decades have seen a rise in the use of the term evidence-based practice and a simultaneous increase in the variations in its definition and evaluation. Subsequently, this rise in interest for evidence-based practices has become a double-edged sword for practitioners--that is, while there are a number of interpretations on the definition of the term evidence-based practice, these numerous contradictory interpretations may actually impede the ethical application of empirically-supported treatments. The general aim of the present paper is to offer the reader an overview of the current state of affairs of the evidence-based practice literature which will culminate into areas for future research and professional debate.
