- We can order this
Multidimensional Evidence-Based Practice (MEBP) is a new and comprehensive approach to determining best practices in social services.
MEBP improves upon traditional evidence-based approaches by incorporating the views of consumers and professionals, qualitative research and values. The book begins with a review of the context of best practice enquiry and goes on to present the seven steps of the MEBP model, discussing each step in detail. The model is appraised and explains how questions are formed, how various forms of knowledge and evidence are summarized and evaluated, and how values are used to both critique current best practices and point towards needed improvements. The final seven chapters illustrate the MEBP process at work specific to a range of topics including best practices in the prevention of child abuse and best practices in restorative justice.
This book will be of interest to social workers and other professionals involved in the delivery of human services. It is also suitable for students and researchers of evidence-based practice.
