Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development

The Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development mission is to promote preventive interventions by providing a comprehensive, trusted registry of evidence-based interventions (programs, practices and policies) that are effective in reducing the likelihood of antisocial behavior and promoting a healthy course of youth development and adult maturity.

Global Implementation Society

Global Implementation Society (GIS) promotes and establishes coherent and collaborative approaches to implementation practice, science, and policy. It promotes the development and integration of effective implementation, improvement, and scaling practices in human service settings to improve outcomes for children, families, individuals, and communities worldwide. It sponsors a biennial conference and a new Springer journal, Global Implementation Research and Applications. 


Implementation Science

Implementation Science publishes research relevant to the scientific study of methods to promote the uptake of research findings into routine healthcare in clinical, organizational, or policy contexts.

National Child Traumatic Stress Network

This links to a section of the NCTSN Learning Center that through webinar-based courses provides information, tools, and resources on key implementation science principles and lessons learned from implementation efforts. The courses promote successful training, adoption, implementation, and sustainability of evidence-based treatment and practices.

All of the content was developed with implementation of practices within the context of NCTSN sites in mind – the population, settings, challenges, and needs commonly seen by providers serving children and families impacted by trauma.


National Implementation Research Network

Based at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Franklin Porter Graham Child Development Institute,, NIRN partners with government, philanthropic and non-profit entities to support the development and use of evidence to improve outcomes for children, families and communities. This is a rich resource for publications and videos.

Society for Implementation Research Collaboration

The goal of Society for Implementation Research Collaboration (SIRC) is to facilitate communication and collaboration among implementation research teams, researchers and community providers. Their goal is to identify successful models of EBPI implementation, and efficient but rigorous methodologies to evaluate the process and outcomes of further implementation innovation. They have recently initiated an online journal focused upon behavioral health care implementation.


The California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse

The mission of the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC) is to advance the effective implementation of evidence-based practices for children and families involved with the child welfare system.

A participant in the Consortium’s leadership group, Jennifer Rolls-Reutz, co-directs this clearinghouse and co-developed a Consortium study of implementation readiness of programs listed there.


Title IV-E Prevention Services Clearinghouse

The Title IV- E Prevention Services Clearinghouse was established by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to conduct an objective and transparent review of research on programs and services intended to provide enhanced support to children and families and prevent foster care placements.

Developed in accordance with the Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) as codified in Title IV-E of the Social Security Act, it rates programs and services as well-supported, supported, promising, or does not currently meet criteria.

At this site you may search programs and services rated well-supported, supported, promising, or does not currently meet funding criteria.
