Evidence-Based Resources - A Social Work Research Guide - Research Guides at Washington University Libraries

Evidence-Based Resources - A Social Work Research Guide - Research Guides at Washington University Libraries | Evidenced Based SSW Practice | Scoop.it

The origin of evidence-based practice is found in medicine, where the goal is “integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research”(Sackett, Richardson, Rosenberg, & Haynes, 1998, p.2). Cournoyer (2004) indicates that the discussion of empirically based social services began as early as 1981. The application of research to social work and to the behavioral sciences accelerated in the 1990s when computing and data management tools became widely available. Evidence-based practice (EBP) has expanded from medicine into the social and behavioral sciences in order to utilize the best possible practices to achieve the best possible outcomes for the client. View an overview of evidence-based social work by Professor Dorian Traube discussion on YouTube. This guide is intended to serve as a reference throughout your studies at the George Warren Brown School of Social Work and to instill an understanding of the EBP process that you can depend on to guide you in your future practice and research. The ultimate goal is that you become familiar and comfortable with approaching problems, questions, and social work practice in an evidence-based manner. This guide  Illustrates how to formulate questions;  Provides the basic definitions and core materials to be consulted for finding current evidence;  Provides assistance in formulating the search strategies for seeking literature in the databases;  Emphasizes the questions related to evaluating current literature;  Assists in analyzing the articles for applicable tools;  Provides suggestions for what to do with evaluations of the applications.

Steve Whitmore's insight:

A comprehensive website with a video, handbook and many links to EBP resources.

Google Scholar, like Google Books, is one of the research tools that students often overlook when searching on the web. Google Scholar can be an excellent place for high school and college students to find peer-reviewed academic papers, journals, theses, books, and court opinions. In the video below I demonstrate how to create a library of resources in Google Scholar as well as how to create Google Scholar Alerts that will notify you when new content related to your research appears in Google Scholar.

This article and infographic shares 10 evidenced-based research strategies to help teach your students. This is a really good resource for any faculty member to review and consider.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 22, 2015 2:58 PM

These strategies are the essential foundation of what all good teachers do.  Every article and book that I have read about school improvement and effective teaching seems for focus on these same strategies.  We know it...but do we do it?  WITH FIDELITY?  I think that is often where it breaks down. These strategies need to be a part of EVERY lesson...EVERY day. They become highly effective when they are implemented consistently and intentionally.  With all teachers are required to do, it is easy to lose focus on intentionally using these effective strategies.

Alfio Gangemi's curator insight, May 24, 2015 8:38 PM

This is probably the best resource I have found for a pre-service and graduate teacher. As the title says it outlines the top ten evidence based teaching strategies and clearly describes each strategy and how and why they are effective. Very useful resource!.

What Evidence-Based Practice Really Means - School Social Work

Evidence-based practice has received criticism for being a “cook book”, cost saving  approach to practice that discounts clinical expertise and clients’ preferences and values.  These critiques often result from the misconception that the term “evidence-based practice” or EBP refers to a manualized intervention that has research to support its effectiveness.

Use Google Scholar to Find Evidenced Based Practice.

Use Google Scholar to Find Evidenced Based Practice. | Evidenced Based SSW Practice | Scoop.it

This is a guest post from Jennifer Carey (@TeacherJenCarey) of EdTechTeacher- an advertiser on this site.

If you have asked your students to engage in research, then undoubtedly they have returned with a fresh list of results from a Google search. It can be a challenge in this era of search engine algorithms to teach students to engage with more traditional research methods and tools. Google Scholar is a great way to introduce them to this work while simultaneously working in a mode that is more familiar to them.

Google Scholar is a Google search engine that allows you to look specifically for academic articles, theses, books, technical reports, abstracts, patent information, and case law. Just like Google’s search engine, you can use basic and advanced search options and find articles that are related to one another. It is important to note that Google Scholar does not contain everything. Much of the material you find may require a subscription to that specific journal article or to use a service like JSTOR. Therefore, this is a good tool to use in conjunction with other search methods and a great way to incorporate librarians into lesson plans and activities


Steve Whitmore's insight:

Google Scholar is a way to begin to look for Evidenced Based Practice (EBP).

Adversity in life is part of the human condition. Whether it’s failure, depression, anxiety, hopelessness, addiction, legal problems, relationship struggles, unemployment, or illness, the inevitable challenges faced by individuals and organizations today demand resilient responses.

We can all have our own resilience breakthrough, Moore argues, and can each learn how to use adverse circumstances as potent fuel for overcoming life's hardships.

 

As he shares engaging real-life stories and brutally honest analysis of his own experiencs, Moore equips you with twenty-seven resilience-building tools that you can start using today -- in your personal life or in your organization.
