In the Illinois survey sample, school social workers reported dealing with social skills deficits, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and anxiety most often in their practices. These referral problems can all be successfully addressed using the evidence-based practice (EBP) process. Using case examples and summaries of the best available evidence, this chapter describes ways to use an EBP approach to engage successfully school clients (students, teachers, and parents) in implementing interventions at both micro and macro levels to address these clinical issues. This chapter describes both treatments rooted in the EBP process, as well as more manualized treatments that have empirical support of effectiveness to show the diversity of current intervention “evidence” and how it can be appraised and then implemented by school social workers.
