Synopsis: This presentation discusses controversies and responses to those controversies related to evidence-based practice within the accountability movement. Specifically, it examines the grounding of the movement and proposes other approaches to achieving the goals of evaluating programs for families of children with serious mental health conditions. At the same time, it explains and rebuts arguments in favor of a radical transformation of research methodology and supports the legitimacy and cultural competence of preferred methodology. The presentation is intended to provide participants with oftentimes opposing viewpoints on the topic: those of families and family organizations and those of the research community.
