Practitioners in the helping professions make life-affecting judgements and decisions. This new integrated learning package seeks to improve practice reasoning through principles of logical thinking and evidence-based practice. EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE FOR THE HELPING PROFESSIONS gives students access to a robust companion Web site, linked to the best databases of use across all the helping professions. Also accompanying this book is a CD-ROM that contains three enactments of evidence-based practice: one of a hospital team, one of a courtroom testimony, and one of a school's individual education plan team meeting. Through viewing the videos on the CD-ROM and completing the interactive assignments, students will learn how to integrate practice and research.

Dr. Gibbs received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and is currently a professor in the department of Social Work at the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire. He has been teaching practice and research courses for over twenty years trying to bridge the gap between research and practice. With this publication, Professor Gibbs now provides those who work in the helping professions with the tools on how to integrate research evidence into practice using electronic means. He has published other works on scientific reasoning and critical thinking for social workers (the latter he was a co-author with Eileen Gambrill).Review:
"This book provides a practical detailed guide for professionals who are interested in evidence-based practice. It is grounded in the frontlines of teaching in a social work bachelor's degree program but will be applicable at many different professional education levels. It contains an entire chapter on posing answerable questions illustrating scores of questions posed by students based on their work with clients in the field.It builds on the extensive literature on evidence-based practice in the health area and illustrates how this literature can help us to honor our ethical obligations to clients to draw on practice -related research findings and honor informed consent obligations."
