HHD 2542 - EVIDENCE-BASED INTERVENTIONS IN REAL WORLD CONTEXTS I
Evidence-based interventions (EBIS) are the foundation of effective and high-quality prevention and intervention programs in education, human services, and healthcare. Both pre-service and continuing education of interdisciplinary professionals must emphasize the acquisition of knowledge and applied competencies about diverse ebis in this continuously evolving area. Many forms of prevention and intervention are used in education, human services, and healthcare, but few such practices have 'practice-based evidence' conducted in real-world settings which validate their continued use. Thus, in this course, students will gain knowledge and skills in evidence-based contextual and individual interventions, their content, methodology, implementation, and evaluation. The course will help students who are interventionists but is not primarily clinical in orientation. Rather, it is designed to prepare future leaders ' practitioners, researchers, program administrators/directors, program evaluators, and policy specialists - in best practices and their implications.
