Introduction

This issue of EBP Quarterly presents a second-year implementation and evaluation report for the Somerset County Day Reporting Center. This report, and the corresponding appendices, present a case study of an SCA funded initiative that is utilizing various evidence-based approaches and evaluating process and behavioral outcomes through a researcher-practitioner partnership. This report illustrates many of the key findings uncovered in larger-scale SCA research, but also provides practical examples of program policies and procedures, strategic and action planning, organizational assessment, use of motivational interviewing, monitoring implementation, and assessing program performance. The importance of prior research findings, collaborative leadership, program fidelity, and data-driven decision-making also is presented in this report.

We hope you find this report and the corresponding documents useful as you consider the use of evidence-based approaches in your own agency.

This issue offers four in-depth articles. Two of them present our first ever "Member Interviews". These interviews feature two executives who continue to lead their organizations and staff of professionals through the process of becoming and staying evidence-based from the ground up. Having invested significant time and resources in the process, they generously share their experiences, lessons learned and make some recommendations we can all learn from. Thank you.
