This final chapter discusses how evidence-based group work (EBGW) can be advanced in clinical settings, research, and education. There is a need for more research evidence about group work and articles about the application of EBGW in practice, including studies on the effectiveness of EBGW. The chapter includes strategies for building support for EBGW in organizations. It also describes how to advance EBGW in higher and continuing education and it highlights the validity of problem-based learning in teaching about EBGW. The Translational Research approach is offered as a model to advance EBGW research, practice, and education. In that model, there would be a planned and systemic collaboration between researchers, educators, and practitioners. Organizational structures would be supportive of EBGW, research would be practice-relevant and readily available to group workers, and education and consultation would be ongoing.

Keywords:   andragogy, problem-based learning, translational research, teaching EBGW, advancing EBGW, dissemination, addressing challenges
