Evidence-Based Practice & The Importance of Descriptive Research

Evidence-Based Practice & The Importance of Descriptive Research

Published by Jane Gilgun
This article shows the importance of descriptive research in evidence-based practice. Using research on resilience, neuroscience, and gender, I show how important descriptive research is to case planning and the design and implementation of interventions. Without descriptive research, practitioners would be like "headless machines," intervening into situations they do not understand.

Effective interventions build upon understanding of particular service users and their situations.

Evidence-based practice is best understood as evidence-based assessments, evidence-based interventions, and evidence-base evaluations. In addition, evidence-based practice is based upon four cornerstones: 1) research and theory for assessment and intervention, 2) practitioner expertise, 3) service user preferences and situations, 4) the personal and professional values and experiences of practitioners. The assessment schema that I propose is a forerunner of The NEATS: A Child & Family Assessment that is widely available on the internet including on Amazon Kindle and scribd.com/professorjane.
