Overview

"Evidence-Based Practice in School Mental Health explains the nuts and bolts of infusing research throughout school-based practice following guidelines set forth by the U.S. Department of Education. In clear, step-by-step detail, it provides the conceptual tools needed to locate, evaluate, and apply evidence in order to demonstrate positive outcomes for students. With its vivid case examples and engaging exercises, this volume offers a pragmatic approach to informing practice decisions with appropriate research to ensure that students receive the best service." More than a mere catalog of interventions that will soon be outdated, the chapters amount to an easy-to-follow road map to evidence-based practice (EBP), explaining how to ask the right questions; search for evidence; appraise the literature and avoid the pitfalls of web-based information; adapt and apply evidence in a developmentally and culturally sensitive way; and evaluate the results. Detailed examples from practice and adaptable sample spreadsheets to evaluate students' progress make the goal of accountability attainable for school professionals who otherwise would struggle to find the time, resources, and support to utilize research in their work.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"One of the strengths of this book is how interesting it is to read, a result of all of the examples based on real-world school practice. School practitioners who are threatened by EBP because it deals with research will find it less threatening after reading the book. Furthermore, there are samples of forms and evaluation scales that can help the novice get a start on EBP. For more advanced practitioners, there are enough practical ideas and resources to stay up to date."--School Social Work Journal
