Social work and evidence-based practice

Jessica Kingsley
Publication year:
Place of publication:

Evidence-based practice, what it might mean, how it can be achieved, whether it should be aspired to – is the subject of much debate and argument in social work. Covering areas of social work practice that are well established and those in which evidence is just beginning to become available, the authors address issues such as: what is to count as evidence, and who decides this?; if relevant evidence is agreed on, how should it be used in practice?; how can the thing that made the difference be identified?; should success be measured as the result of the theory employed by the worker, or because the worker is skilled, conscientious and effective?; how predictable, controlled and orderly can social work become?. Exploring these issues within a range of contexts – from child abuse and domestic violence to looked after children and disability, the authors demonstrate why evidence-based practice is important, but also why it is important to think clearly and carefully about its implications for the social work profession and the users of social work services.
