A GROUNDBREAKING GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING AND UTILIZING PROVEN EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE TECHNIQUES

The Evidence-Based Practice: Methods, Models, and Tools for Mental Health Professionals gives practitioners everything they need to effectively understand, evaluate, and implement evidence-based practice (EBP). This exceptional book features insight and information from the top researchers and leading practitioners in the field. EBP is covered in such relevant mental health contexts as:

  • Community treatment
  • Severe mental illness—treatment and recovery
  • Psychopharmacotherapy
  • Psychosocial rehabilitation
  • Substance abuse disorders
  • Treating children and adolescents

In addition, The Evidence-Based Practice provides detailed guidance on important aspects of implementation, including how to evaluate readiness as well as where and how to begin EBP in different types of agencies, practices, and facilities. A helpful appendix includes sample treatment plans and additional resources.

With a Foreword by Mary Cesare-Murphy, Executive Director, Behavioral Health Care, JCAHO—the leading accrediting body in behavioral health—The Evidence-Based Practice is an essential handbook for mental health trainers, students, frontline clinicians and counselors, and administrators.
