Abstract

Although child welfare leaders recognize the impetus to implement evidence-based practices (EBPs), like the Positive Parenting Program (TripleP), to achieve intended outcomes, they lack knowledge on how to effectively engage in the implementation process. Child welfare workers, supervisors, and clinicians participated in semi-structured interviews during the early stages of implementing TripleP in a large Mid-Atlantic city to illuminate (1) how implementation processes are theoretically linked, and (2) whether they agree upon these relationships. Findings revealed that agency leaders may observe a shift in practice by mobilizing teams to disseminate research about EBP efficacy and illustrate the referral process.
