The Centre for Evidence-Based Intervention specialises in high-quality evaluation of interventions for social and psychosocial problems, in particular through conducting randomised trials, systematic reviews and other evaluation designs. We also carry out basic research into causes of social problems, to enhance knowledge of intervention mechanisms.
We are funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH: NIDA and NIMH), Swedish Board of Health and Welfare, Danish Board of Social Research, UK Department for Education and Skills, UN Development Program, Health Foundation, Health Technology Assessment, Oxfordshire Mental Healthcare Trust, California State Office of AIDS, University of California, for randomised controlled trials, systematic reviews and studies of risk factors for social problems, in the fields of social welfare, mental health, HIV prevention, AIDS-affected children, family and parenting interventions for mental health and conduct problems, school based interventions, self-help psychological interventions and sleep disorders.
Our work is closely linked with the Cochrane and Campbell Collaborations, which publish many of our reviews. Two of our staff are Cochrane Editors for the HIV and the Developmental, Psychosocial and Learning Problems review groups. Our research is integrated with our teaching of the Masters and Doctoral programmes in Evidence-Based Social Intervention, and many students conduct Cochrane reviews as part of their degrees. We also have many doctoral students undertaking research in the centre.

The Department has a Facebook group called 'Evidence Based Social Intervention' in order for alumni, current students, faculty and staff involved in the EBSI programme to stay connected, network and reflect on current developments and research.
Please join this group if you would like to contact past and present students about our courses.
