Do Counselors Use Evidenced-Based Treatments? Results of a Pilot Survey

Thomas A. Field, Elizabeth B. Farnsworth, and Steven K. Nielsen


A randomized U.S. sample of National Certified Counselors (N = 76) completed
a survey regarding their utilization of evidence-based treatments (EBTs) and
attitudes toward evidence-based practice. The majority of participants reported
utilizing EBTs within the past year (69.4%), and the number of EBTs utilized
was surprisingly high (M = 9.17).
