Putting Research into Practice in School Violence Prevention and Intervention: How Is School Counseling Doing?
McAdams, Charles; Shillingford, M. Ann; Trice-Black, Shannon
Journal of School Counseling, v9 n12 2011
This article reports the findings of a national survey of practicing school counselors regarding their knowledge of current research in school violence prevention and intervention. The authors describe four active areas of youth violence research over the past two decades and present findings that suggest that a potentially dangerous gap may exist between research advances and their incorporation into the day-to-day practice of school counselors in the United States. Implications of the findings are considered along with strategies for bridging the research-to-practice gap as recommended by the school counselors themselves. (Contains 3 tables.)
