Using practical examples from a child welfare research capstone class, this article discusses how the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC) can be used as a tool to teach social work students how to access, analyze, and interpret current research related to child welfare practice and help them apply their understanding of evidence-based practice to their work in the field. We showcase CEBC’s selection and implementation materials, including a framework for implementation, to help students learn how to apply research-supported interventions to real-world situations in child welfare or other family-serving organizations. We hope that by providing such an illustration, social work educators can apply the CEBC in their teachings on research-supported interventions.
