Interventions on SSWN – What’s with the tiers?

Welcome to the Intervention section of SSWN!

Have you wondered what to do about bullying in your elementary school? Want some tips about how to take something evidence based and put it into practice? Curious about how school social workers are implementing interventions? You have come to the right place!

Want to know what the tiers in school social work are all about? Here’s a rundown of what the tiers mean for both academics and behavior from Florida Multi-Tiered System of Supports.

In this section we will provide you with some ideas about how school social workers are using interventions. In-practice school social workers will contribute their own ideas and examples of their work. Each school social worker will answer the following prompts:

  • Describe your intervention and how you use it.
  • Where did you find this intervention? If it is from an Evidence Based Practice, how did you adapt it (if at all)?
  • What data (if any) are you using to evaluate it?
  • How would you could go back and re-implement this intervention if you could?

For practitioners (and students who will become practitioners): You can see how other school social workers get their work done. Hopefully, you will get some new ideas that you can use right away, and connect to others in practice.

For researchers (and students who will become researchers): You can see what practitioners are actually using and how it is working for them.

Please contact Ruth Orme-Johnson if you are a school social worker who would like to share your experience with an intervention.
