In this module you first reviewed key principles from the earlier course, Research and Statistics for Understanding Social Work Problems and Diverse Populations, as they apply to the current course, Research and Statistics for Understanding Social Work Intervention. The readings then introduced concepts related to understanding social work intervention and the kinds of evidence used to inform and evaluate social work intervention. Information about the evidence-based practice (EBP) model was presented, along with several points of criticism, and EBP was contrasted with evidence-informed practice and evidence-based practices (EBPs). Concepts related to practice and program evaluation were introduced, and you read about different types of evaluation and the kinds of information they provide. Finally, you re-visited issues of research ethics, this time in the context of ethics specific to intervention research. You are now well-prepared to engage with the next module’s content: identifying and using evidence to inform intervention.
