  Annotation: This Web site provides online access to an inventory of reports on evidence-based, research-based, and promising practices for prevention and intervention services for children and juveniles in the child welfare, juvenile justice, and mental health systems.
Abstract: The reports are available under the following policy areas listed in a menu on the “home” page: child welfare; criminal justice (adult offenders, juvenile offenders, and sex offenders); education (higher education and K-12); health care; mental health; prevention; government; State economy; employment/welfare; cost-benefit analysis; and research-based programs. A separate menu is provided for current projects listed by project name, topic, and researchers. Another menu lists publications by author, title, and date. The Inventory is regularly updated by the University of Washington Evidence-Based Practice Institute under funding from the Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP) as mandated in legislation enacted by the Washington State Legislature in 2012. This legislation also requires periodic updates to the inventory. After this first update, additional updates are anticipated in June 2013, January 2014, and annually thereafter. Although the initial inventory included all evidence-based and research-based programs in the defined areas of interest that had previous meta-analyses completed by WSIPP, due to time constraints, the 2012 inventory did not include a comprehensive set of “promising practices;” consequently, the current update gives priority to a listing of promising practices.
