Review Quotes
\"Professors Roberts and Yeager have produced probably the most comprehensive treatment of evidence-based practice. There is everything in here between two covers. The book traverses a vast expanse of territory with depth and clarity, all the way from treating the individual psychotherapy
client to evaluating the outcomes of complex community programs. This manual can be the ultimate guide to information ranging from issues in public health to psychology to criminal justice. With the
oad spectrum of topics and the in-depth view of the scope of the issues, readers would most
likely find the answer regardless what question they may have.\" --Journal of the American Public Human Services Association

\"This book is like a large, rare diamond. ....{it} will be used frequently and is destined to become a classic in the important years ahead.\" --Families in Society

\"The Evidence-Based Practice Manual effectively tackles the biggest questions in social work: Is there sufficient evidence on which to base social work practice decisions? Yes! Should social workers be ethically bound to provide best practices assessment and interventions? Yes! Can social work
any longer afford to ignore the empirical evidence and practice outside of a best practices model? No! Finally, social work practitioners and educators have an outstanding and complete manual to assist in identifying and applying cutting-edge protocols and evidence-based practice.\"-Karen M. Sowers,
Ph.D., Professor and Dean, The University of Tennessee College of Social Work

\"This manual represents a significant and timely step in our further efforts to establish a base for understanding and promoting the efficacy of social work practice. Both social work practitioners and social work educators will find the studies
oadly representative of the field, research
methodologies, and our attempts toward greater accountability in social work practice.\"-- Julia M. Watkins, Ph.D., Executive Director, Council on Social Work Education

\"Most people who work in the health and human services fields do so because they want to help others, to make a difference. This new, practical guide is a rich resource for what really does work -- based on the best of evidence.\"--William L. Roper, M.D., MPH, Dean and Professor of Health
Policy and Administration, School of Public Health and Professor of Pediatrics, School of Medicine, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina

\"Congratulations to Roberts and Yeager on their magnificent new volume, the Evidence-based Practice Manual, a genuinely seminal contribution to interdisciplinary practice in health and human services. It is the best, most comprehensive, exceptionally well-written and up-to-date book on
knowledge-building and evidence-based practice. Every clinician, researcher and administrator should have a copy on their desk!\"--Bruce A. Thyer, Ph.D., LCSW, Dean, School of Social Work, Florida State University and Editor-in-Chief, Research on Social Work Practice journal

"The Evidence-Based Practice Manual tells you everything you need to know about evidence-based practice, but never thought you could find in one book. The list of contributors reads like a who's who of social service and public health researchers. This comprehensive, multidisciplinary book
presents the latest state-of-the-art information about evidence-based practice."--Elaine P. Congress, DSW Professor and Associate Dean, Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service

\"This compendium reviews a comprehensive array of methods of searching for, planning and implementing, and using evidence-based studies and practice-based research. Its 104 excellent and original chapters cover a complete range of quantitative and qualitative research exemplars, assessment
scales and instruments, evidence-based protocols, program evaluation methods, and quality assurance indicators and performance measures in public health and social work settings. All students, professors and practitioners in social work, public health and allied fields should keep this essential
reference nearby on their desks as a valuable resource in helping them implement and advance evidence-based practice.\" --Allen Rubin, Ph.D., Bert Kruger Smith Centennial Professor in Social Work, The University of Texas at Austin School of Social Work

" 'All-inclusive' and 'comprehensive' are the most appropriate words to characterize this manual, prepared for those who are implementing or will implement evidence-based practice in their own fields of human services. From individual health intervention to societal policy making, from grant
application to program evaluation, from measurement theories to intricacies of real-world intervention, from the 500-item glossary to the 120 Internet resources, I cannot find areas or topics that are important for those who care about evidence-based practice that are not covered in this
authoritative desktop reference."--Toshi A. Furukawa, M.D., Ph.D., Professor and Chair, Department of Psychiatry, Nagoya City University Medical School, Nagoya, Japan

\"The Evidence-Based Practice Manual includes an extraordinary range of 104 original, informative and well-written chapters that should be required reading for every practitioner of health services research and quality improvement in health care, particularly those involved in mental health
care delivery.\" --Gordon Guyatt, M.D., M.Sc. Professor of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, and Internal Medicine, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada; and Chairman, A.M.A. Evidence-Based Medicine Working Group
