Why Use Evidence?

The profession cares: The Council on Social Work Education "recognizes that teaching social work students how to access, analyze, interpret, and appropriately employ evidence is critical to effective social work practice".

Your professors care: You are expected to use and cite high-quality evidence to support your conclusions in research papers/projects. Usually this comes from peer-reviewed scholarly articles.

Your clients care: Don't reinvent the wheel, but start with what is effective based on the best available evidence.

You should care: If you want to be the best social work professional possible and truly make a difference, you'll use high-quality evidence to support what you do.
