The second edition of the Clinician’s Guide to Evidence-Based Practices: Behavioral Health and Addictions
provides practitioners with the skills to retrieve and use research in order to benefit patients suffering from mental and addictive disorders. Practice must be informed and guided by research, yet so much of the research literature feels inaccessible and overwhelming, too removed and too large to guide what we do daily with our patients. This book overcomes these challenges to evidence-based practice (EBP) by serving as a practical, how-to guide for graduate students and behavioral health practitioners. Following three realistic patients throughout, the Clinician’s Guide
canvases 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 it to others. This revised and updated edition includes a separate chapter on filtered sources for accessing the best available research, a series of hands-on Skill Exercises in each chapter to provide practical use of the material, a new section on barriers to successful implementation, and a companion website with expanded content, interactive examples, and hyperlinked references. ...Less
