Evidence-based Social Work: A Critical Stance

Mel Gray, Debbie Plath, Stephen Webb

Research output: Book/ReportBook

It has become a powerful movement that promises to change the content and structure of social work and its allied professions. Its emergence has generated much debate and raised challenging questions, however, particularly at the interface of research, policy, and practice.
