Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. consider barriers and facilitators to implementation of evidence-based interventions in schools.
  2. describe strategies for supporting successful implementation of evidence-based interventions for emotional and behavioral problems and skills deficits, consistent with the NASP Practice Model.
  3. understand how hybrid effectiveness-implementation study methods can be used to more efficiently support translation of research findings into practice.
  4. learn about several evidence-based practices that can be effectively implemented in schools to address emotional and behavioral problems or organizational skills deficits.


Methods from implementation science are increasingly being employed in school-based research to support the use of evidence-based practices (EBPs). This symposium includes a discussion of three hybrid effectiveness–implementation studies conducted in schools, with a focus on barriers and facilitators of implementation. Practitioners will learn strategies to support implementation of EBPs, and researchers will learn how to integrate implementation science methodology into effectiveness studies.

Convention session locations are only viewable for convention attendees. Locations will be available/visible Monday, February, 25 2019.
