Helpful Guide for Evidence Based Social Work Practice
Brown School EBP Handbook
Developed at the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University (St. Louis, MO), this guide provides detailed steps in the process of developing evidence based social work practice.
- Formulate an empirically answerable question from a practice situation
- Locate the best available evidence relating to the question
- Integrate (1) the best available evidence with (2) practitioner judgement, (3) social context, and (4) an understanding of involved persons
- Review how things went and learn from the process
