There is agreement among researchers and policy makers that child welfare services have been slow to effectively implement ESIs. The authors argue that ‘implementation matters’ and present empirical evidence for the impact of high quality implementation on program outcomes. The chapter examines a variety of issues that make implementation a complex and difficult endeavour in child welfare settings. The authors discuss ways to improve implementation through the use of common elements of interventions and supporting planned and appropriate adaptation of interventions in the service setting, as well as utilizing frameworks of implementation to guide implementation efforts. Finally, the authors identify critical components of implementation such as staff recruitment and selection, staff training and support, intervention and related staff evaluation.

Keywords:   Implementation, Implementation frameworks, Empirically Supported Interventions (ESI), Empirically Supported Practices (ESP), model fidelity, staff recruitment, staff training, staff support, staff evaluation, common elements
