A Profitable Conjunction: From Science to Service in Children’s Mental Health

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter begins with a discussion of the meaning of evidence-based practice and why it matters. It then identifies six categories of research in which studies are needed to amplify, strengthen, and extend the science on evidence-based services for children and adolescents. It argues that developing a science that will be serviceable for children requires a different and more iterative model of the relationship between search and practice. Such a model is then described.

Keywords: evidence-based practice; child mental health; adolescents; children
