Dr. Kelly’s Scholarly Work

Michael Kelly, SSWN Co-Editor

I am Associate Professor and Director of the Family and School Partnerships Program at Loyola University Chicago’s School of Social Work. Prior to coming to Loyola in Fall 2006, I was a school social worker, family therapist, and youth minister in the Chicago area for 14 years. I’ve authored over 50 journal articles, books, and book chapters on school social work, evidence-based practice (EBP), and positive youth development. He is a fellow of the Oxford Symposium for School-Based Family Counseling, and the Associate Editor of the Advances in School Mental Health Promotion Journal. I also serve on the Editorial Boards of School Mental Health Journal, School Social Work Journal, and Children & Schools. I have recently brought my work on school mental health and EBP to researchers and practitioners in England, Rhode Island, Wyoming, Canada, Chile, and Japan.

Here are a few sites that feature some of my scholarly work:
