Abstract/Description: “Evidence-based practice” is a catchphrase often heard in the field of contemporary human services (Dimmitt, Carey & Hatch, 2007; Levant, 2005), but one sometimes wonders how much true understanding is associated with it. It is no small irony that counselors may adopt what sounds like good practice, e.g., narrative-based approaches, in the absence of supporting evidence or research. Our observation is that career counseling practice is sometimes driven more by concepts and ideas than research evidence. This paper focuses on developments that occurred 40 years ago in counseling, particularly career counseling, and seeks to resurrect this evidence-based approach to standard practice.
