Community Support: a practice based intervention: [5 minute exposé]

N. Heijs, Vera Verhage

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherProfessional


Community Support offers specialized care to children, adolescents and their families. We developed a practice based intervention, called Community Support, we offer integral guidance in all areas of life (health, finances, education, school/work and daily routine). In September we started a project together with the Science Shop. A student investigated, through a systematic literature review, which factors affect collective efficacy. The goal was to collect evidence for our practice based intervention. This is however quite challenging.

We see that clients (and financers) are increasingly asking about the use of proven effective interventions. As an intervention owner, we also would like to make our contribution to science. At the same time, we notice that it is challenging to bring science and practice together.
