Evidence-based practice is a philosophy of care integrating the best research available, the patient’s values and preferences, and the practitioner’s expert opinions. Levels of evidence, based upon the research design, can be used to appraise the status of a single study. Although there are a number of systematic reviews and meta-analyses in the psychiatric music therapy literature base, additional investigations are warranted. Quantitative inquiry does not represent the sole model for improving the status of music therapy as an evidence-based practice: patients’ values and preferences are also integral components. There are five steps that guide evidence-based practice. Music therapists should use these steps to guide the formulation of interventions. Evidence-based treatments are specific treatments that have a strong supporting research base. There are six established evidence-based treatments for adult psychiatric patients that music therapists can implement in their clinical practice.
