Evidence-Based Practice Manual: Measuring What Counts in Health and Human Services


Solomon, Francis, Policy & Practice


Evidence-Based Practice Manual: Measuring What Counts In Health and Human Services Edited by Albert R. Roberts and Kenneth R. Yeager. Hardcover/ 640 Pages/ Oxford University Press / December 2003/0195165004 List Price $89.50

Professors Roberts and Yeager have produced probably the most comprehensive treatment of evidence-based practice. There is everything in here between two covers. The book traverses a vast expanse of territory with depth and clarity, all the way from treating the individual psychotherapy client to evaluating the outcomes of complex community programs.

The manual was developed as a comprehensive practical desktop resource. The book represents a timely step in the human services field to establish a base for understanding and promoting the efficacy of social work practice. It comes at a time when evidence-based practice is becoming imperative in the human services field. The book includes 104 chapters, each written by some prominent and experienced medical, public health, psychology, social work, criminal justice and public policy practitioners, researchers and professors in North America.

This is the only interdisciplinary volume available for locating and applying evidence-based assessment measures, treatment plans, and interventions. In fact, this book is designed with practitioners in mind, providing overviews and direct application chapters for those working in the field.
