Explore three widely used Evidence Based Practice (EBP) models including solution focused, motivational interviewing and cognitive-behavioral therapies, while raising concerns about the prescriptive nature of these models, which creates a false dichotomy between science and art. Also hear about the importance of maintaining our profession’s historic social justice mission illustrating this with an example from a veteran’s psychiatric hospital.


1. Identify key strategies from the three Evidenced-Based Practice (EBP) Models that can be integrated into a unique social work model.

2. Understand how to avoid the false dichotomy between science and art using the science of practice to guide the social worker’s unique artistry.

3. Identify 
EBP strategies that can be used while maintaining our profession’s historic social justice mission by working with the system (e.g., agency, setting, community) as well as with our clients.
