Selecting & Implementing Programs

The goal of the CEBC Selecting & Implementing Programs section is to provide guidance and resources about the implementation of Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs).

Research on implementation, both in child welfare and 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.
