Effectively Using Evidence-Based Practices

 

As a mental health professional, you are increasingly called on to use evidence-based practices (EBPs) in your work with people. Evidence-based practice originated in the medical field, where thousands of randomized controlled studies have been conducted. Unfortunately, it has been more challenging to put EBPs into direct practice in the mental health field, as there is often a large delay between discovering effective practices and putting them into practice with mental health consumers. This course will provide you with a clearer understanding of evidence-based practice, so that you can help bridge the gap between research and practice, and better assist the individuals you serve. In this course you will learn about different definitions of EBPs, how EBPs are developed, as well as the potential positives and negatives of EBPs that you need to keep in mind as you consider using them. You’ll also find out about some well-established EBPs, along with how you can implement them in your own practice with specific populations. This course will guide you through a series of vignettes and interactive exercises to help you apply what you have learned when you need it most. This training is appropriate for a variety of clinical professionals working in the mental health field with basic to intermediate levels of experience. Ultimately, your completion of this course will make you more prepared and confident as you consider using EBPs in your own setting.
