A Case for Evidence-Based Practice


ABSTRACT

Evidence-based practice (EBP) has enjoyed increasing popularity in the field of social work. However, not everyone is enthusiastic about this movement. This paper defines EBP, attempts to clarify common misconceptions about EBP, and organizes and analyzes some of the criticisms of EBP so that the field of social work can move onto a more productive debate about its legitimate strengths and limitations.
