Evidence-Based Practice in Clinical Social Work introduces the key
ideas of evidence-based clinical social work practice and their
thoughtful application. It intends to inform practitioners and to
address the challenges and needs faced in real world practice. This
book lays out the many strengths of the EBP model, but also offers
perspectives on its limitations and challenges. An appreciative but
critical perspective is offered throughout. Practical issues
(agency supports, access to research resources, help in appraising
research) are addressed - and some practical solutions offered.
Ethical issues in assessment/diagnosis, working with diverse
families to make treatment decisions, and delivering complex
treatments requiring specific skill sets are also included.
