Guide for Child Welfare Administrators on Evidence-Based Practice - 2012

The Guide for Child Welfare Administrators on Evidence-Based Practice is an update of one that was written in 2005 as a collaborative effort between the Chadwick Center, which manages the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC), funded by the California Department of Social Services, Office of Child Abuse Prevention, and the National Association of Public Child Welfare Administrators (NAPCWA). The purpose is to provide guidelines for a common language and framework with which to understand the conditions, challenges, and opportunities of evidence-based practice in child welfare. This document pertains to prevention and intervention services, but the overarching principles can be applied to all practices in child welfare. It is intended to provide a foundation of information for child welfare administrators.
