The Domains and Demands of School Social Work Practice

This chapter identifies issues and solutions to problems that families and whole-school communities experience. Drawing from the Illinois survey data, it shares two major family stressors that school social workers say their families struggle with (i.e., divorce and poverty) and shows how an EBP process can help school social workers find the best available evidence to understand and intervene with those family stressors. Finally, the chapter shares two extended case examples of whole-school interventions (quadrant A and D) that made a significant impact on the school community after EBP process was used to assess the school community and intervene effectively.

Keywords:   community practice, family interventions, EBP, school social work, divorce, poverty
