Readings in Evidence-Based Social Work
Syntheses of the Intervention Knowledge Base

Edited by:


January 2009 | 344 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The editor of RSWP, Bruce Thyer, noted that there is a great need within schools of social work to incorporate the latest research on evidence based practice within the curriculum. In fact, courses that are specifically focused on evidence based practice are also being offered.

This reader synthesizes the current knowledge, add editorial commentary and questions, and present state-of-the-art material in a cost-effective and collective way. The reader is intended to help faculty supplement their existing textbooks with a volume that can help students better understand which interventions work and why.
