SOCW 6311 Week 1 Assignment – Assignment: Accessing Information About Evidence-Based Practices

Assignment: Accessing Information About Evidence-Based Practices
The first steps toward narrowing the gap between research and practice are recognizing that one exists and educating oneself and others. Social workers must realize the benefits and eliminate the misconceptions surrounding evidence-based practice. In the Bradley episode featured in the resources, the social worker combines her assessment of Tiffani Bradley’s individual situation with her knowledge of research to evaluate her supervisor’s recommended intervention. Now that the social worker has recognized a gap, she/he/they need to access potentially relevant information for a specific case and critically analyze for its applicability to that case. This week’s Assignment allows you to practice these critical next steps in the Bradley family case.
To prepare for this Assignment, review Episode 4 of the Bradley family case study. Develop a list with 2–3 researchable questions that you could use to find evidence about the efficacy of 12-step programs or other treatments for substance abuse in adolescents. Then, using the resources provided, search for two evidence-based interventions that would be appropriate for Tiffani Bradley. Be sure to consider quality of research, readiness for dissemination, replications, and costs.
Submit a 600 – Word paper that includes the following:

Summaries of the two      interventions and their respective research regarding effectiveness
Recommendations for      Tiffani’s social worker that address the following:

Factors to consider when       choosing between the two interventions
The social work skills that       the staff would require to implement the intervention
The training required to       implement each intervention

An evaluation of      evidenced-based practice based on your reaction to the experience, in      which you address the following questions:

Would you, as a beginning       researcher, have enough knowledge to benefit from researching       evidence-based practices? Why or why not?
How might the research that       you conducted increase your confidence in the intervention with Tiffani?
Is the information provided       enough to make a decision regarding interventions? Why or why not?

Appropriate APA citations in      your writing

Must contain 3 references and citations form the following materials only.
