If we are discussing what we would normally do, I would: 
1. Ensure they understand that I am listening to their suggestion and am willing to take all ideas into consideration.
2. Acknowledge that I understand why they are suggesting the non evidence based intervention as in, I understand the “why.” 
3. Suggest an alternative, or take elements of the suggestion that DO have some research base (usually there are components of non-evidence based interventions that do come from evidence-based interventions) and incorporate it into a compromise plan of intervention (depending on who I am working with).
