Presentation Type: poster presentation

Synopsis: Despite recent attention to evidence-based mental health practices (EBP), practitioners do not frequently utilize EBP in serving their clients. The disjointed relationship between the scientific research base and clinical/community practices is compounded by practitionersÕ lack of access to research literature and disputes among mental health stakeholders with respect to criteria for evaluating evidence. The purpose of this presentation is to (a) present a systematic review of professional guidelines and state policies for determining evidence in support of specific childrenÕs mental health practices, and (b) provide recommendations for ensuring that research-based evidence is useful in guiding policy and practice.
