A model is proposed whereby the intervention literature can be empirically factored or distilled to derive profiles from evidence-based approaches. The profiles can then be matched to individual clients based on consideration of their target problems, as well as demographic and contextual factors. Application of the model is illustrated by an analysis of the youth treatment literature. Benefits of the model include its potential to facilitate improved understanding of similarities and differences among treatments, to guide treatment selection and matching to clients, to address gaps in the literature, and to point to possibilities for new interventions based on the current research base.
