A program or practice that has been demonstrated through scientific studies to be effective in improving outcomes for a specific population.
Evidence-based programs have demonstrated effectiveness through research
Promising practices have some evidence for benefits to consumers
Common practices have no data to support their use but over many years they have been built into a series of laws, regulations, funding mechanisms, professional and organizational accreditation standards, etc. that sustain them
Harmful practices have evidence indicating harm to clients but often still are supported as a common practice
But all need to be based on:
