- Psychoeducation as Evidence-Based Practice: Considerations for
Practice, Research, and Policy
- Ellen P. Lukens, William R. McFarlane
Brief Treatment and Crisis Intervention,
Volume 4, Issue 3, Fall 2004, pages 205-225
This paper describes psychoeducation and its applications for mental health and health professions across system levels and in different contexts by reviewing the range of applications that have appeared in the recent literature. The theoretical foundations of clinically based psychoeducation are reviewed and the common elements of practice are identified. Examples of well-defined psychoeducational interventions are presented that meet criteria for empirically supported psychological interventions. In conclusion, the broad applications of psychoeducation for health care and mental health practice and policy at both the clinical and community levels are discussed, and the need for further evaluation and research is considered.
