Partnerships to Integrate Evidence-Based mental health Practices into Social Work Education and Research

IASWR collaborated with the National Institute of Mental health (NIHM) to launch an initiative focused on enhancing partnerships to integrate evidence-based mental health practices into social work education and research. The purpose of the workshop that was held on April 12, 2007 in Bethesda, Maryland was to develop strategies to accelerate integration of evidence-based mental health practices (EBPs) into social work practice via academic social work programs. This report is just one part of a multi-faceted effort within the social work profession to bridge research and practice. The reports outlines current efforts and identifies a series of actionable items that can be taken by multiple stakeholders to expand research and to further integrate both the evidence-based practice process and specific evidence-based mental health treatments into education and practice.
