Evidence-based practice (EBP) involves identifying, assessing, and implementing strategies that are supported by scientific research. State child welfare agencies are increasingly aware of the need to focus their resources on programs that have demonstrated results, especially for achieving outcomes as measured in the Federal Child and Family Services Review process. In addition, many State legislators are calling for information about whether the programs they fund work, and foundations and other funders often require that grantees employ evidence-based program models. To provide evidence that their services achieve positive outcomes, administrators, program managers, supervisors, and frontline workers must understand how evidence-based practice applies to child welfare services and be aware of the resources and tools available to assist them.
