Rethinking the Bar on Standards of Evidence for Social Work Intervention Research
Nurius, Paula S.
Research on Social Work Practice, v20 n5 p547-549 Sep 2010
The research reports by Boyd et al. and Herman et al. provide insights about intervention research with vulnerable populations that highlight often-neglected standards of evidence. This commentary describes linkages of nonspecific therapeutic factors critical to these outcome studies as illustrative of research to practice standards we must continually promote. Embedding intervention research with iterative links to service system and implementation research provides a framework for social work to chart future contributions toward closing critical translational gaps.
