Abstract

What does the future hold for psychotherapy research and practice? We review some key influences, including declining psychotherapy utilization, increasing impact of evidence-based medical practices, over-medicalizing of mental health problems, and changing priorities from grant funding agencies. These factors hold potential opportunities but also major pitfalls that will need to be carefully navigated related to implementation/dissemination issues, interdisciplinary collaborations, and psychosocial versus biomedical perspectives related to the nature and treatment of psychopathology. In addition, we review and comment on the other articles contained in this special issue pertaining to the future of evidence-based psychotherapy.
