Implementation Resources Section

Welcome to the Implementation Resources section of the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC). This section of the website provides child welfare professionals with useful information to assist in the process of selecting and implementing Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs).

There is a wealth of practical experience documented in the literature on implementing new practices. However, the actual research on implementation, both in the realm of child welfare as well in related fields, is still in its early stages. The limited amount of existing implementation research in child welfare focuses on factors (e.g., research-practice partnerships, provider attitudes, technical assistance teams, organizational culture and climate) that facilitate or impede the implementation of EBPs.

Over the coming years, data from completed studies and studies currently under way will help to inform policy makers, agency directors, providers, and consumers about the best ways to facilitate implementation of evidence-based practice in real-world practice settings. Additional resources and information will continuously be added to this section of the CEBC website that will keep the consumer up-to-date on the emerging field of implementation.
