Abstract:

"As group workers must increasingly demonstrate accountability by evaluating, monitoring, and improving their practice using concrete data, resources that explicitly connect evidence-based practice with group work remain scarce. Now, at long last, Mark Macgowan has crafted the first step-by-step guide to evidence-based group work practice." "Organized logically around the process and philosophy of evidence-based practice, the text develops a four-stage sequence in which group workers formulate a practice question, search for evidence, undertake a critical review of the evidence, and apply the evidence with judgment, skill, and concern for relevance and appropriateness, utilizing evaluation to determine if desired outcomes are achieved. The evidence-based framework leaches students how to apply best practices through a wealth of case examples, checklists, assessment tips, and clear instructions for formulating questions and evaluating answers. Designed as a supplement tor graduate group work courses, this landmark book will be equally valuable lot professionals eager to hone their practice skills and researchers searching for group interventions and assessment tools."--BOOK JACKET.
