APA practice guidelines are developed by expert work groups, who review available evidence using an explicit methodology. Iterative drafts undergo wide review by experts, allied organizations, and any APA member. Every guideline is also reviewed and approved for publication by the APA Assembly and Board of Trustees. The development of APA practice guidelines has not been financially supported by any commercial organization. We encourage you to review the Clinical Practice Guidelines pages periodically to learn about updates to the guidelines. As with clinical guidelines in general, Cascade's adopted guidelines are intended to augment, not replace, sound clinical judgment.
