Research

‘Research and Practice Development’ at YSAS concentrates primarily on developing, implementing and evaluating evidence-based practice within YSAS and the wider service systems concerned with our client population.

We endorse an integrative approach to evidence-based practice that gives equal weight to:

  • Best available research evidence
  • Theory
  • Practice wisdom
  • Client values and characteristics

Our goals are to generate information, knowledge, and action that will:

  • Assist YSAS staff to improve the quality and effectiveness of their services;
  • Enhance the diversity, relevance and cogency of the evidence-base used to inform the design of treatment and support, early intervention, and prevention programs targeting the population of young people who use YSAS services;
  • Strengthen advocacy and build capacity for the development and implementation of policy that facilitates the inclusion, empowerment and development of the population of young people who use YSAS services; and
  • Improve outcomes for the young people who use YSAS services.
