EBP, Evidence-Based Practice, appeared in the area of social work at the beginning of 2000. EBP was formally established in medicine in the 1990s, but now exists as a powerful methodology with which integrate science and intervention through social work. This article has three purposes: 1) to review the history of EBP and the reason for the appearance of EBP in the social work area; second, to examine definitions of EBP and steps for practice; thirdly, to pay attention to the use of EBP in social work education and social practices. The use of EBP in future social work will also be examined.
