Eileen GambrillGuest Lecture
Evidence based practice: choices made and those ahead

held by Prof. Eileen Gambrill (California, Berkeley)

Thursday 8.03.2018, 12:00 c.t. - 14:00
Room 3221, Leopoldstraße 13, 80802 München


The description of the process of evidence based practice as a suggested way for practitioners and clients/patients to make decisions was introduced over two decades ago. What has been the fate of this process? What has been forwarded in place of this process and what are related reasons? Why are so many avoidable misrepresentations of the process published? Who benefits and who loses from these misrepresentations? What are some of the most important contributions of the process of EBP, for example encouraging involvement of clients/patients as informed (rather than misinformed) participants in decisions made.
These questions will be addressed in this lecture drawing on related literature in and concerning the helping professions and the fate of new ideas.
