Sample text

Slade and Priebe (2002) say that drug companies routinely fund psychopharmacological research and taxation funds service-oriented research, leaving charities to support the remainder. The DoH (2001a) has identified mental health as one of three research priorities, recognising that spending on mental health research has been significantly less than that on the other two priorities – cancer and heart disease – both of which have substantial charitable funding sources. The government’s, and therefore EBP’s, focus on the clinical and cost effectiveness of treatments has accelerated the shift in research attention away from understanding mental health problems and exploring them in a social, cultural and political context, towards positivist approaches to treatment, that is, to outcomes.

Qxd 9/7/2006 12:25 PM Page 36 Art Therapy, Research and Evidence-based Practice Plainly art therapy cannot quickly conjure up the research base that EBP orthodoxy requires. Research of all kinds takes time and funding priorities need to be established and strategies devised. Parry and Richardson (1996), in accordance with the research trajectory of EBP, prioritise the economic evaluation of psychological treatments and attention to clinical effectiveness that includes the development of outcome measures appropriate to psychodynamic change.

But resources for generating the primary source of evidence, research, come from government and its agencies, from psychopharmacological companies and from charities. qxd 9/7/2006 12:25 PM Page 25 Evidence-based Practice directly linked to, and socially constructed by, government policies and systems, and by commercial interests. EBP implicitly supports the bio-behavioural model of care that assumes that superior truths are achieved through a particular form of research – the RCT. This may work within the framework of medicine but it disadvantages disciplines (like art therapy) and research (other than experiments) that operate outside the medical mainstream and in a cross-sectoral way.
