Synopsis: Organizational context is likely to influence successful implementation of evidence-based practices (EBP). Little is known, however, about the effect of EBP implementation on the mental health workforce. Using a statewide study of childrenÕs services case-management teams, this research examines the relationship between EBP implementation and an important issue facing many childrenÕs services agencies, high staff turnover. Theory suggests that EBP may contribute to turnover by reducing worker autonomy. However, a more nuanced relationship was found as EBP implementation was associated with differing turnover intentions and actual turnover patterns based upon staff characteristics and the length of time since the initial EBP implementation.
