"I believe that clinicians of all experience levels would do well to read this book. While some of the topics may be familiar to recent graduates, a review of the techniques for critically assessing research can never be anything but beneficial. Rubin's use of personal examples from his own clinical work brings the area into the real world. In addition, readers should find his inclusion of synopses, key chapter concepts, and exercises useful and informative." (PsycCritiques, August 2008)Praise for the first edition:
"I particularly like the integration of research methods and EBP; this is the book's major innovation in my mind as it allows readers to see the connections between research and practice. Rubin also succeeds by taking very complex EBP principles and explaining them in practical terms."
—Jeffrey M. Jenson, Ph.D., University of Denver, Graduate School of Social Work
"An extraordinary and important book. Its approach to evidence-based practice is very sound, realistic, and generous to the complexities of everyday practice. It provides an excellent practitioner's desk book to students and professionals who want to implement evidence-based practice. Reading and using this book is a must."
—Haluk Soydan, Ph.D., University of Southern California, School of Social Work
"Rubin keeps the reader engaged in a topic that otherwise might have been less than exciting. This book is informative to old-timers like me and I would imagine to those new to the research enterprise and evidence-based practice. Allen Rubin has done it again! Another fine contribution to research and the advancement of evidence-based practice."
—Kevin Corcoran, Ph.D., J.D., Portland State University, School of Social Work
"This book has the potential to change practice in the helping professions. Rather than focusing on how to conduct research, the Practitioner's Guide to Using Research for Evidence-Based Practice instead shows readers how to understand the literature.... This is a monumental shift. Evidence-based practice requires the use of evidence, yet students often struggle with interpreting what they find in the literature and will sometimes give up on the entire process. Rubin solves this dilemma by giving us a comprehensive yet readable text for the uninitiated and he does so in a manner that may even engage the uninterested. In particular, his generous use of humor and the inclusion of simple, practice relevant examples make this book a pleasure to read for students at almost any level. Imagine laughing while learning what you need to know about research! I never thought I'd see the day."
—Aron Shlonsky, Ph.D., University of Toronto, Faculty of Social Work
