Everyone, it seems, is talking and arguing about Evidence-Based Practice (EBP). Those therapies and assessments designated as EBP increasingly determine what is taught, researched, and reimbursed in health care. But exactly what is it, and how do you do it? The second edition of Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practices is the concise, practitioner-friendly guide to applying EBPs in mental health. Step-by-step it explains how to conduct the entire EBP process-asking the right questions, accessing the best available research, appraising the research, translating that research into practice, integrating that research with clinician expertise and patient characteristics, evaluating the entire enterprise, attending to the ethical considerations, and when done, moving the EBP process forward by teaching and disseminating it. This book will help you: * Formulate useful questions that research can address * Search the research literature efficiently for best practices * Make sense out of the research morass, sifting wheat from chaff * Incorporate patient values and diversity into the selection of EBP * Blend clinician expertise with the research evidence * Translate empirical research into practice * Ensure that your clients receive effective, research-supported services * Infuse the EBP process into your organizational setting and training methods * Identify and integrate ethics in the context of EBP Coauthored by a distinguished quartet of clinicians, researchers, and a health care librarian, the Clinician's Guide has become the classic for graduate students and busy professionals mastering EBP.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The ability to critically review the research is essential for optimizing patient care. This book provides a good introduction to this process and maintains a level of sophistication that is both helpful and reasonable for students, paraprofessionals, and other non-research-based disciplines. 5 stars!" * Doody's Reviews *
This book, written by leaders in our field, articulates and synthesizes evidenced-based practice (EBP) in a manner that is very accessible to the practicing clinician. For those clinicians in particular who have doubts about the whole concept, this book will be extremely valuable in forging a path to EBP that will be compatible with the vicissitudes of practice. Nothing else like it exists." * David H. Barlow, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, Boston University *
An innovative pocket-sized primer written by three distinguished psychologists.... a handy how-to manual on using research evidence to guide clinical work. Together they present a pragmatic, step-by-step approach to accessing, interpreting and applying research evidence to one's own practice." * New England Psychologist *
This is as fine a guide to the new world of evidence-based practice as any clinician could hope for. From formulating the question to finding the evidence, and from evaluating the research to applying it in practice, Norcross and colleagues have provided a much needed roadmap to the appropriate use of research data in clinical practice." * Paul S. Appelbaum, MD, Elizabeth K. Dollard Professor of Psychiatry, Medicine and Law, Columbia University *
An excellent primer on most aspects of EBPs, including finding, evaluating, adopting, implementing and sustaining those innovations in routine practice. The guide is generally good at simplifying, cutting through complexity, and offering practical explanations that supersede the jargon that all too ofteninfiltrates the field. The publishing of this book could not have come at a better time. The book includes a wealth of useful information about EBPs for both neophytes and experienced therapists." * PsyCRITIQUES *
Meeting the mandate to use evidence-based addictions treatments just got easier. Front line substance abuse counselors will find everything they need in this primer to locate, evaluate, and employ scientifically supported treatments without giving up their common sense in the bargain. This primer presents the nuts and bolts of using the latest research science to improve clinical practice, while making the most of hard won clinical experience." * Theresa Moyers, PhD, Research Professor, University of New Mexico *
A much-needed and unique contribution to clinical practice. A clinical guide that is sophisticated but easily read, comprehensive but elaborate, practical but conceptual, and stimulating but substantive. This is the best book available for clinicians and students who want not only to apply evidence-based practices but also to understand the basis for such practices." * Stanley Sue, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of California, Davis *
Essential reading for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals. The Institute of Medicine identifies evidence-based practice as a core competence for health professionals in the 21st century. This book could not be more timely or important." * Gary Bailey, MSW, Simmons College *
