In Evidence-Based Practice for Social Workers, Thomas O'Hare strikes a pragmatic balance between flexibility and adherence to empirical guidelines in performing routine assessments, interventions, and evaluations. The purpose of this book is to address the need for a framework guided by the best evidence to help practitioners who work with clients with difficult and complex psychosocial issues.

This fully updated text is a comprehensive guide to applying effective interventions for children, adolescents, and adults experiencing various mental health disorders and problems in living. O'Hare show readers how to combine human behavior knowledge with an analysis of individual clients' needs to conduct accurate assessments, tailor intervention plans, and successfully implement treatment and evaluation in everyday practice.
