Updated Inventory of Evidence-Based, Researched-Based, and Promising Practices: For Prevention and Intervention Services for Children and Juveniles in the Child Welfare, Juvenile Justice, and Mental Health Systems

University of WashingtonIn 2012, the Washington State legislature passed E2SHB 2536 with the intention that “prevention and intervention services delivered to children and juveniles in the areas of mental health, child welfare, and juvenile justice be primarily evidence-based and research-based.” The bill directs the Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP) and the University of Washington Evidence-Based Practice Institute (EBPI) to prepare and periodically update an inventory of evidence-based, research-based, and promising practices and services. This report is the sixth update to the September 30, 2012, publication and reflects promising program applications and WSIPP’s ongoing work on systematic research reviews and its benefit-cost model.
