Toward Evidence-Based Practice: Variations on a Theme is an insightful collection of previously published articles by one of social work's most controversial figures, Joel Fischer, a long time advocate of research and research-based practices. In this book, which includes his groundbreaking 1973 article, "Is casework effective?" and ending with excerpts of his most recent "Reflections," Fischer offers insight on the field of social work and the struggle toward evidence-based practice and empirically supported interventions.
