The webinar series was presented by the Administration for Children and Families, Region 10 – Seattle and the National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare.
Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a combination of the best available research evidence, the best clinical experience, and the best effort to be consistent with family/client values (Institute of Medicine, 2001). This session includes the utilization of evidence-based practices in substance abuse treatment as a method of achieving improved outcomes for children and families involved in the child welfare system. Classification ratings and methods are described; and valuable EBP online collections and databases are shown. Two programs that have been classified by the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC) are spotlighted in the session.
