  • Foreword Recently, the American Psychological Association adopted a policy that (a) defined evidence- based practice in psychology (EBPP), (b) affirmed the importance and utility of using EBPs to enhance health, and (c) delineated the various principles that guide EBPP (APA Presidential Task Force on Evidence-Based Practice, 2006). The evidence-based practice movement appears to provide some impetus to reduce ethnic and racial disparities in mental health. First, EBPP involves using those treatments that are effective according to controlled research studies in which the issue of generalizability must be considered. Second, a major competency associated with clinical expertise involves cultural competence, namely, the ability of the clinician to work with a client and provide treatment in a manner that is culturally meaningful and ecologically valid. Finally, EBPP uses the best available evidence on patient characteristics, culture, and personal preferences to adapt the treatment to best serve a particular client. Nevertheless, the substantial promise of EBPP for addressing cultural diversity issues should be tempered by the fact that there is little of this “best available evidence” with respect to ethnic minority populations. The national conference on “Culturally Informed Evidence Based Practices: Translating Research and Policy for the Real World” took place on March 13-14, 2008 in Bethesda, Maryland. The purpose of the conference was to inform and stimulate interest and activity in generating research and evaluation efforts in the development of evidence-based practices for ethnic minority populations. This conference was initiated and led by the Society for the Psychological Study of Ethnic Minority Issues, Division 45 of the American Psychological Association. Four other APA Divisions were major collaborators in this effort; they included Division 12 – Society of Clinical Psychology, Division 17 – Society of Counseling Psychology, Division 37 – Society for Child and Family Policy and Practice, and Division 42 – Psychologists in Independent Practice. The Conference Task Force consisted of representatives of these organizations as well as those from federal funders, the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). We are very grateful to SAMHSA and NIMH as well as to our other major funders, Alliant University and the Asian American Center on Disparities Research at the University of California, Davis. With 25 APA Divisions and two ethnic minority psychological associations co-spo
