Synopsis:
Evaluating Practicecontinues to be the most comprehensive practice evaluation text available. Focusing on single-system designs, Evaluating Practice, Fifth Edition, presents clear guidelines on conceptualizing and measuring problems, developing practice-oriented evaluation designs, understanding and analyzing data, and ethical guidelines for practice evaluation. Specifically written for students and practitioners in all the human services, including social work, psychology, counseling, nursing and psychiatry. Unsurpassed among human service evaluation texts for bringing clarity to evaluation procedures, Evaluating Practice comes with a free CD-ROM featuring numerous programs, including the innovative SINGWIN program for analyzing data (created by Charles Auerbach, David Schnall, and Heidi Heft Laporte of Yeshiva University), and the CASS and CAAP programs (created by Walter Hudson) for managing cases and scoring scales. The improved and expanded CD-ROM contains an "Intervention Plan" form that can be used to develop a comprehensive intervention and evaluation plan of action that parallels chapters in the text. The CD-ROM also contains a new "running case" that can be used interactively to try out concepts and procedures from the text. Significant updates to SINGWIN (on CD-Rom), including the incorporation of new statistical procedures designed for ease of application. And the prologue offers an extensive case illustrating the integration of practice, ethics, and evaluation for students, making the text even more appealing to practitioners.
