This text examines the use of evidence-based practices (EBPs) within the mental health professions serving the unique and culturally diverse clients of Hawai‛i. This text is an introduction to this multifaceted topic and gives readers a solid foundation from which to begin their clinical work in Hawai‛i and perhaps spark their interest in evidenced-based practice and clinical outcome research.
This text approaches the subject from a learner's perspective and attempts to answer the most pressing questions on this complex topic:
What do students and new practitioners need to know about evidence-based practice today? What kinds of presenting issues would a new practitioner in Hawai‛i likely see? and What are the unique cultural aspects of practicing in Hawai‛i?
