Summary:"Now in a new edition, this accessible, engaging textbook presents step-by-step guidelines and useful examples for each phase of practice, from assessment to intervention to evaluation. It describes and illustrates the process of evidence-based practice and its value in honoring ethical obligations. The close relationship between critical thinking and the philosophy and process of evidence-based practice is illustrated throughout. Both contribute to making sound practice decisions. Eileen Gambrill - a pioneer of the evidence-based practice movement - skillfully shows students how to pose helpful questions, search for answers, and evaluate what is discovered." "Filled with practical advice, real-life case scenarios, thought-provoking exercises, and straightforward guidance, this problem-solving practice guide is designed to prepare students to advocate for clients by being, above all, good decision makers."--BOOK JACKET.
