The Evidence-Based Internship is a unique teaching and learning tool that combines an internship manual with a text on evidence-based practice. Designed for students entering their field placements in social work and criminal justice-which often overlap-it is built on the premise that students, agencies, and field instructors should be able to provide clients with the best, evidenced-based practice methods currently available. Giving students the confidence to begin their field assignment, it is filled with useful strategies for successfully navigating the internship and honing the skills necessary to become accountable practitioners. Worksheets, checklists, and in-depth case scenarios illustrate legal and ethical issues, interview and assessment skills, techniques for gathering evidence for a variety of problems in mental health and corrections settings, and preparing an employment portfolio. This is one field manual that students will find useful long after they have completed their internship.

Review quote

"Every student entering a field internship should read this useful book. All of the tools necessary to have a successful field experience are contained in this volume. It is a unique and comprehensive evidence-based manual that social work and criminal justice students will find extremely useful during their field internships."-Elizabeth C. Pomeroy, Professor of Social Work, University of Texas - Austin "Thomlison and Corcoran have crafted an in-depth and substantive manual for student internships. The manual builds on the best research evidence and applies that evidence in a way that makes situations in the field come alive for students. The book is conceptual and applied, combining the best of both approaches. I highly recommend it."-Scott Decker, Curator's Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice, University of Missouri - St. Louis
