STENZEL, Lucia Marques. The humanistic approach in the debate on evidence-based psychotherapy. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2022, vol.28, n.1, pp. 70-82. ISSN 1809-6867.

The aim of this study is to approach the convergence between humanistic approach and contemporary discussions on Evidence-Based Practice in Psychology (EBPP). This is a topic permeated by ethical and epistemological dilemmas that hinder the engagement of researchers and clinicians in this debate. In this article, recent research that includes different humanistic approaches unveiling the question of what works in psychotherapy is presented. The following themes are dealt with here: the assumptions of the humanistic approach more directly involved in the debate; the historical influence of theorists such Carl Rogers in this discussion; the clashes over the articulation between humanistic theory and the theme of the efficacy in psychotherapy; and the participation of humanistic theorists in the elaboration of the practical recommendations proposed by the American Psychology Association (APA). At last, the study explores the need to engage Brazilian researchers in this discussion.
