Abstract

The recent trend toward evidence-based practice has transformed the helping professions, social work among them. Recent books on EBP, however, have been geared more toward the social work research community than to the frontline practitioner seeking clinical knowledge. Evidence-Based Practice in Clinical Social Work fills this gap, presenting EBP as both an effective approach to social work and a broader social movement. This practical volume takes readers through the EBP decision-making process in assessment, treatment planning, and evaluation, providing guidelines for making relevant use of research findings. This practice-building reference: introduces core principles of EBP and details its processes in social work; provides examples of meta-analysis and systematic reviews; features guidelines for engaging clients in EBP, including transmitting research findings; addresses education and supervision issues, and ongoing controversies; and includes a glossary and useful appendices. Clinical social work professionals and educators as well as policymakers will look to Evidence-Based Practice in Clinical Social Work as a resource that broadens the field and expands the healing possibilities for the profession.
