Evidence Based Practice with Latinx Populations

Chair: Omar Gudiño, PhD, University of  Denver, [email protected]

The purpose of the Evidence-Based Practice with Latinx Populations SIG is to disseminate information on research developments and clinical innovations related to the use of evidence-based practices (EBPs) with Latinx populations. There is an increasing emphasis on the use of EBPs on one hand and limited research findings specifically examining the use and outcomes of EBPs with Latinxs on the other. This SIG creates a forum for NLPA members to 1) keep current on the latest research findings, 2) promote and support new research, 3) disseminate practice-based evidence from clinicians experienced in using EBPs with this population, 4) advocate for improved training in EBPs, and 5) discuss barriers to the use of EBPs and potential ways of overcoming these barriers. Therefore, the overall goal of the SIG is to promote the development and application of knowledge specific to using EBPs with Latinxs in an effort to improve access to effective treatments.
