The Layard Proposals (LPs) are generating a significant amount of publicity and controversy within mental health, the profession of clinical psychology and the mainstream media. The proposals are advancing an ambitious programme for improving access to psychological therapies within the NHS, byt some commentators have questioned the methodology used to justify the inclusion of some psychological treatments at the expense of other approaches. This paper discusses some of these issues in the context of discussions around evidence-based practice.
