Overview

Provides practical ways to measure and monitor client progress.

 

Part of Advancing Core Competencies Series, a unique series that helps students taking advanced social work courses apply CSWE’s core competencies and practice behaviors examples to specialized fields of practice.

 

Outcome-Informed Evidence Based Practice shows students practical ways to measure and monitor client progress and use this feedback to help clients achieve their goals.

 

Outcome Informed Evidence Based Practice places emphasis on social workers who provide direct services to clients, not only in clinical settings, but in a broad array of other settings such as schools, health care, social service agencies, residential facilities, and more.  Using case examples in almost every chapter, this text highlights the diversity of clients encountered by social workers, providing real-world contexts for discussing chapter concepts. This text is also useful for psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and other allied health care and social service professionals.

 

Learning Goals

Upon completing the book, readers should be able to:

  • Help clients make the best decisions by measuring and monitoring client progress, and modifying interventions accordingly,
  • Graph, analyze, and interpret their client’s progress
  • Recognize social workers should systematically measure and monitor their clients’ outcomes at regular frequent intervals
  • Identify measurement issues that influence the quality of the information collected by them and their client
