Updates on Evidence-Based Practices

The California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC) provides a database of evidence-based child welfare programs and practices, each of which undergoes a thorough review by a topical expert and a national scientific panel prior to inclusion on the website.

CEBC has posted two new topic areas. “Mental Health Treatment for Children” includes a multisystemic therapy program. The second addition is “Screening and Assessment Tools for Child Welfare,” which contains new tools and can be located in the Assessment Tools section of the CEBC website. These tools are:

  • Ages and Stages Questionnaire
  • Adolescent Coping Orientation for Problem Experiences
  • Child Abuse Potential Inventory
  • Family Assessment Form
  • Family Assessment Measure III
  • Keys to Interactive Parenting Scale
  • Parenting Stress Index and Parenting Stress Index-Short Form

In addition, new programs have been added to the existing topic areas of:

  • Casework Practice
  • Child Welfare Initiatives
  • Substance Abuse (Parental)

The CEBC is run by the Chadwick Center for Children and Families, in cooperation with the Child and Adolescent Services Research Center.
