Designed for both researchers and practitioners, this book is a guide to bridging the gap between the knowledge generated by scientific research and application of that knowledge to educational practice. With the emphasis on evidence-based practice in the schools growing exponentially, school practitioners must learn how to understand, judge, and make use of the research being produced to full effect. Conversely, researchers must understand what is being used in "real-world" settings, and what is still needed. The editors of this book have outlined this process as a series of steps, beginning with being a critical consumer of current research literature, followed by concepts to consider in translating research into practice: systems issues at local, district, and state levels; the role of teachers in program implementation; evaluation of implementation effectiveness, and preservice and inservice professional development of teachers and psychologists. Each chapter is written by leaders on the topic, and contributors include both researchers and school-based practitioners. With contributing authors from a variety of disciplines, this book is an invaluable treatise on current understanding of the complexities of translating research into educational more

Review quote

"Rosenfield and Berninger have long been instrumental in transforming school psychology into a systems-intervening practice. I agree with them that this is a book for researchers and practitioners...It is essential reading for those who train school psychologists; supervisors of school psychology practitioners should own it as well. District supervisors of curriculum, school administrator trainers, teachers, educators, and those individuals in state departments of education who license professional educators would do well to read large portions of this book; practitioners who read it can share those relevant sections with their educator colleagues. School psychology training programs must have this book readily available and assign it as a text across several training courses." --Wayne Barry, as reviewed in NASP Communique "Every thoughtful psychology practitioner has realized that while knowing an answer is vital, it is rarely enough. The dual challenges of having a store of expertise useful to alleviating presenting problems and understanding how to communicate, motivate, and institutionalize the application of that expertise in practice settings are successfully overcome in this volume edited by Rosenfield and Berninger. The scientific and clinical art issues associated with the valid translation of evidence based interventions to schools are organized and presented in an innovative format by the best thinkers and doers in the field. I will advocate its use by practicing and trainee psychologists and teachers. This is a 'must have' volume." --Jane Close Conoley, Ph.D., Dean, Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, University of California-Santa Barbara"show more
