Data from the Evidence-based Treatment Survey were used to compare providers serving families in American Indian and Alaska Native communities to their counterparts in non-American Indian/Alaska Native communities on provider characteristics and factors that influence their decision to use evidence-based practices (N = 467). The findings suggest that providers affiliated with American Indian/Alaska Native communities are similar to their non-AI/AN community-affiliated counterparts in terms of familiarity, knowledge and use of evidence-based practices, and only differ slightly on the factors considered when deciding to use an evidence-based practice with a child and family. (Contains 3 tables.)
