In today’s climate, it is becoming increasingly important to provide social work students with practice knowledge on research-supported
social work interventions. CSWE has placed greater emphasis on using research-based knowledge to inform and guide social work
practice, and the field has recognized the value of adhering to the evidence-based practice model in all facets of social
work practice. It is at this juncture when social work educators are expected, with ever-diminishing resources, to offer training
in evidence-based practice to social work students and practitioners that SAMHSA has developed a series of practice kits on
a variety of research-supported treatment programs. Structuring portions of social work education around these toolkits would
be one way of promoting a more research-supported curriculum content.
