Evidence-based approaches, including structured cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and problem-solving treatments (PST), are effective for medication treatment (Gath & Mynors-Wallis, 2000; Hegel et al., 2002).

Hi there. While it sounds like data visualizations are so valuable, I wonder if there is any weakness about it that social workers should keep in mind?
