It is no wonder that fewer than one percent of the practice decisions made by social workers are influenced by research findings (Rosen et al. 1995). If practice guidelines are to be developed from social work scholarship, the profession must rise to the challenge of conducting more intervention research. DEVELOPING PRACTICE GUIDELINES: WHAT CONSTITUTES “STRONG” EVIDENCE? Practice guidelines and other resources such as treatment manuals are an important aspect of making the best current information available to practitioners (Howard and Jenson 1999).

Social information processing theory, for example, was developed in part by studying minority children (Crick and Dodge 1994; Graham and Hudley 1994; Graham, Hudley, and Williams 1992). A successful quasi-experimental study of an intervention that employed social information processing theory might enjoy greater salience because its research base included careful measurement of children who are often at greater risk of poor developmental outcomes. In addition to design criteria such as those used by the American Psychological Association, the inclusion of sampling and measurement criteria is central to establishing credible social work practice guidelines.
